I started on this project a year and a half ago. Since this project was for myself,I put it aside whenever another anyone else ordered something, etc…. and would pick it up from time to time to do a few minutes of work on it.
It then was moved to a higher shelf in the shop and forgotten about for the last six months. I finally found it again when I did a thorough cleaning of my shop last week. I finished it last night.
There are 28 different cartoon characters cut into this piece of poplar. The piece measures 14×9 inches and is only around 1/4 inch thick. It took a while to lay out this pattern as well as the overall shape of the piece.
The finish of choice is a soak in lemon oil and a backing of thick black felt.
I KNOW I’m asking for trouble, but I would like to see how quickly you LJ’ers can name all 28 characters in this scrollwork – pic three is numbered. Just reply below with the number and name. If you see someone already named a character correctly please don’t repeat it.
Ok, gulp, here goes….............. ;-)
Enjoy and let the chaos commence!
