This was created as a gift for two great friends of ours who were married today.

They both love “The Kramer” and have a HUGE poster of him in their house.

The wood is ornamental cherry and has oxidized really nicely since I cut and finished it – about two months ago.

The piece measures around 10×12 inches and is around 1/4” thick.

Finish was a soak in lemon oil and a backing of thick felt.

Enjoy – I sure hope the Bride and Groom do!

Nice. Lucky friends you have.

That cherry did age nicely – it looks scrumptious.

What a great job and gift. People would pay BIG money for this.

You did a wonderful job of capturing Kramer’s “essence.”

As Cosmo himself says: “You don’t sell the steak, you sell the sizzle!” Yeah. This sizzles. Great work!

Nice cutting. I love how the hand looks like it is floating. How careful were you with that?

Actually, the hands were MUCH easier than the head and neck area. The hands have quite a bit of wood attaching them yet. If you look at the head and neck, the only thing that holds these on are a tiny tab of material on Kramer’s left hand side. That was the dicey part! :-)

Thanks to all for your compliments!
