I found a stack of plywood that someone had put out by the road for the trash man, so of course I stopped and grabbed it. When I got it home and stacked it in the workshop, I noticed a skull in the wood grain. It looks like Iron Maiden’s mascot Eddie. So, I took the opportunity to make a fun, quick wall hanging project featuring the piece of plywood. Sometimes I just like going into the workshop without a plan and seeing what I can create out of the blue. With every project, I try to incorporate a new tool or learn a new skill. This time I used the scroll saw to do some lettering. Turned out to be a pretty cool conversation piece on my shop wall.

Picture 3 – The cutout of the top piece of plywood just happened to frame the skull in the piece underneath…that’s how I noticed it.
