This picture is done with 3 different patterns. The wood is Oak and you can see that the grain goes in at least 3 different directions. The wood was so hard cutting that I just about went through all the blades I had to get this project finished. There were some places that the blade just would not finish cutting the piece. I enjoyed doing this, but I have to tell you with this piece of wood I was glad it was done.

The Bear pattern I could not find who the author is. The Wolf is by Charles Deering hope I spelled his name right. The Cats are by Marilyn Carmin.

The picture itself measures 12” in the widest part and 23” at its tallest corner 5/8” thick. Finished with Danish Oil and Wax.

Thanks for looking.

Those are so neat. I’ll bet it was hard cutting—that is a thick oak board!! It appears to be a wild grain section that would be hard on a table saw!! Lots of stress in that board!

You did a nice job on it.! thanks for sharing, Kelly…................Jim

Excellent work on this. You did that piece of oak justice…that’s for sure. I bet you WERE glad when this was done.

That hunk-a Oak is perfect for those beautifully scrolled animals, and such. Very nice

An impressive piece ! It’s a tribute to your skill that the orientation of the bear’s head does not confuse one as to what it is. It seems to me, do a poorer job of that and people would say “what is that ?”.

This is all cut in thick Oak solid wood folks! Not the thin plywood stuff, but real wood. Very well done K.S.,
