I burned this into basswood. It’s from a pic I took while riding my motorcycle with my buds. I used the live edge of the scrap board to give a impression of a distant mountain or something. It looks “deeper” in person!

-- I did measure it twice, it's still too short.

The live edge is a great idea! Really blends in with the image.

Very nice. The live edge gives a very good depth to the picture, and that’s from a picture of the thing. Great execution!

That is really a cool idea using live edge to set off the project. It looks like the desert blends in with mountains in the background. I have some crosses I want to make and I’ll try using live edge on the top and the sides…..........Jim
