Very nice William. You keep this up and you will have the whole Bible on your wall. I like the contrast of the colors. I had once read a whole book on just these verses. There is a reason why most people know this chapter and most of the lords prayer. And yes I can read.;) If I was going to scroll a verse out of the Bible it would have to be the shortest verse ” he wept”. But again its very pretty.

Thank ya’ll.SuperD, I have three plaques in this style now, but I have saved the largest one till last. I have one more to do of the four patterns I bought. It is the poem, “Footprints”, in it’s entirety. It is supposed to measure 28×36”.It will be at least after Thanksgiving (or later) before I start it. I’m taking a hiatus at the moment. I will be checking into Lumberjocks on a regular basis. I just need to catch up on all the little things I’ve allowed to pile up on me lately.

If you would clean that shop. Stuff would stop piling up. JK;)
Cant wait to see the footprints in person. Just wash them first….

and if I’d clean the sawdust off the floor now and then maybe I wouldn’t leave so many footprints.

I think I am about ten seconds behind you on your posts. Stop that. You will get footprints on my posts;)

I stepped away from the computer for a while. Actually that is not accurate.I rolled away from the computer for a while.As I looked back I noticed something. No footprints.
Good thing my wife is a better housekeeper than I am a shop keeper, or there may have been wheelprints.

I don’t know if I’d say I love cutting lettering Sheila, but it does keep my occupied on those bad days. You have to pay close attention on these or you’ll lop a letter (or the dot over an I) right off.By the way, I’ve already had someone ask me if I could make this in, like, half the size for less money for them. Then, they just didn’t get it when I tried explaining why I would charge them three times as much to cut one in half the size.

That is so precise, William; wonderful work.
