A fellow lumberjock friend recently saw my Bengal box project and asked me if I would accept a commission to create a KU/Jayhawk logo panel that he would like to use for the lid of a box. After several discussions about veneer selections and sizing, we agreed on a design and here is what we came up with.
The front of the panel features the Jayhawk logo which is made up of walnut, bloodwood, ribboned yellow heart and bleached maple veneer. To showcase the logo I decided to do the background in a 45 degree 4 way book matched maple background. The inside KU logo is walnut set into a wonderful birds eye maple.
This was all hand cut using a fretsaw with 00 blade and employing the double bevel technique. Finished with just a base coat of shellac as a sealer. The panel dimensions are 9×14 and this was glued onto a 1/4” baltic birch substrate using tight bond cold press glue.
My client was very happy with the finished product, and I look forward to seeing the completed box.
Thanks for looking!
