Just a simple fretwork bird cut into a basswood tree-cookie.

Really nice cutting – end grain is really tricky stuff!

If you want that image to really stand out, glue a piece of black felt to the rear of it. You would be surprised at how wonderful it looks with that kind of contrast.

Great job!

Thanks, I’ll give that a shot, I was considering gluing a piece of walnut to the back, and black felt would probably work even better. My mom wants a couple more made so i do some experiments.

very impressive

That must have been so difficult to do.
I hope you add a picture to this to show us the dark background
