What can I say about Ceiling Cat? He’s a phenom on the internet – do a Google search for “Ceiling Cat” and you will easily find out all about him. BE WARNED though – some of what you find may not be “Family Friendly”........

Anyway, I was asked to cut this critter and I think it’s a pretty cool image so why not!

While I was cutting this guy, I decided to do a rather in-depth tutorial on all the prep work I do prior to actually putting blade to wood. It’s saved as a blog on LJ’s and you can find it here:

This work is done on solid Locust wood and sports two live edges. It measures 5 1/2×8 1/2 inches and is just over 1/8 of an inch thick.

As normal, finish is a soak in lemon oil and then backed with thick felt.

Good job bob on that cat.

You should put your skills into trying one of the 3D papercraft versions in wood.
That would be a hoot.

As one of those who get ‘it’ I appreciate this wholeheartedly. Nice scrolling too, Bob.

Nice – detailed description of the process you use. If I understand correctly you spray the wood and not the pattern. I spray yhe pattern thus never seem to have and gule in non-wanted areas. Now this is just my process as I learned it and not saying it is best or better – just my process.

Actually I spray both the wood and the pattern – I get a far stronger bond that way.

If you read the comments from me below on my blog I go into the reasons for this.

Excellent work my friend! I agree with BritBoxmaker! The entire scroll is WONDERFUL! I need to get a pattern for my first work experience. Congratulations Friend!
