This was a commissioned piece by a good friend. He has a new neighbor and being the kind person he is wanted to give her a housewarming gift.

Piece measures 7 inches square and contains five “floating” parts that have to be glued onto the felt backing after everything is treated and finished.

Wood used is 1/4 inch thick red oak. Finish is a quick soak in lemon oil. Backing is a thick felt.

My first attempt at this project, as well as an explanation of who this guy is (in case you don’t recognize him) can be found at this link.

Enjoy!

Thank you all!

The whiskers indeed did frighten me a bit, but I try to orient the grain to travel along the tiny bits so it makes it a tad less spooky. :-)

Very nice scrolling, Bob! I love the cheezeburger cats and this is sure to be a big hit! I don’t know how you cut those tiny whiskers! You did a great job!
