THat is very cool, Backwood. I may be biased, being a Texan and all myself =), but I think it looks fantastic. Is this intended for wall decor or did you have some other purpose in mind?

I remain convinced the outline of Texas is the best in the country. I remember seeing a similar type project with the cut out of West Virginia I think, just looked like a random unrecognizable shape cutout. God bless Texas!

Thank you, fellow Texans. Chris, it’s just a wall hanging. Rodney, it’s about 16”...pattern came from Google images, blown up and printed, measured, glued, and cut.
