I was making ornaments for a friend my husband works with. This friend went to Missouri to visit relatives and came across some Cedar wood that he thought I would like to have. This is one of the pieces of wood that he picked up for me, cool huh! Immediately seeing the wood I started picking out patterns that I was going to use for each cut where a branch had been, and this, with help from my husband, is what we come up with. The patterns are all parts of patterns I picked out to make them fit in the spots I wanted.
The pictures measures 36” to the very bottom tip it’s 12” wide and 1” thick at the top and a little thicker than that at the bottom owl. All three portraits are from different patterns. After cutting I brushed on Danish oil and let dry for at least a week because the humidity here has really gone up. Finished it with semi-gloss spray and then wax.
Don’t know if you can see it from the pictures, but the coon’s hand and around his face is raised to look as if he is comming out of the hole.
The top owl is a pattern from Scroll Saw Portraits no name to the author. The bottom owl is from a pattern called Spectacled Owl by Jake Kipple. The racoon is from the pattern called Double Trouble by Jeff Zaffino
