This 4 Leaf Clover is my first attempt at wood carving. It is a copy of a brass wall hanging my MIL has this hanging on the wall. LOML wanted me to created this in wood to give as a baby shower gift to her BFF. Are you following all of these abbreviations? So anyway, I had some scrap cherry laying around… I thought I’d give it a try.
My first attempt was in a block of balsa. It went okay. I learned a few lessons.
There are actualy two cherry four leaf clovers. The first one wasn’t good enough because I had an Oops and cut the one leaf. I tried to hide it by making a pie cut in the leaf, but it didn’t fool my wife. She said she couldn’t give it as a gift. So the “messed up” one is ours. The second one was given as a gift.
The finish is BLO with high gloss oil base polyurethane.
