I suspect I’m having some type of creative block these days – could be the lack of warm weather in our new home. Or the lack of a sign of a blossom or flower.
So I decided to start a shadowbox collection of miniature and various themed dressing rooms. It’s a good way to use up my old scraps of wood and have some fun while I’m thinking of another large project.
By using only scraps for the pieces and a 2×4 for the frame, it was cheap to make. My only problem was mitering the corners. I have a cheap saw and there’s no way to make the blade perfectly square with the table. But It was a painted frame anyways so I managed to fill it and hide the gaps.
I hope someone, somewhere is enjoying spring. I’m patiently awaiting my outdoor carving days.
Take care all.
PS. Thanks Lightweight, I almost forgot to mention the size – the opening of the frame is 12” x 23” which makes the shirt about 8” long.

Jordan,

I love it! ! ! Just how big is it? Every detail is perfect. (Why should we expect anything less from you?)

Thanks for sharing.

Jordan- is this a relief carving, or are the items removable. Looks mighty creative to me.

I saw this and was wondering why it was posted in the projects. Then I saw who posted it and realized these things weren’t really what they appeared to be. Just amazing.

Donna, this is a diorama – all of the items have been carved separately out of various types of wood – basswood, tupelo pine, but are firmly attached!!
Gage – you and your darn warm weather!!!!! I doubt that we hit 98 in the height of summer!
Bertha – I’ll trade you my block for your puppy – I’ve always wanted a dog like that.

Ditto on what Kent said . Your talent is never ending it seems there’s nothing you can’t do. I love this send in the clowns miniature and I don’t even like clowns!
