Taking inspiration from KnotCurser, I decided to make my own Eeyore. Not having a printer, I plastered a grid over the original and transposed the best I could onto a 12×12 piece of kraft paper. Actually, the paper was bigger, but the image turns out to be almost exactly 12×12(inches, of course).

The frame is Brazillian Cherry with the field being plain ole Luan. Not the best choice, but it sorta matches the rustic look I was aiming for. Overall size is approximately 21” tall by 19” wide. I lapped the corners to get more of a “Donkey looking out the barn window” sort of look. Spray Deft Laquer for a finish. Wow, I really like how this Brazillian Cherry looks with the Laquer. Its not bad to work with either.

Knowing that the pattern would be destroyed in the process, I added a layer for a future template. I also added an additional layer for a duplicate in case it turned out acceptable. This is only my 2nd scrollsaw piece like this, but certainly not my last. It was quite easy, even with the three layers. I REALLY like this cut-once, end up with multiple copies process.

Comments and criticisms welcome as we are all learning here.

Rance,

That piece more than deserves to be framed – your cutting is superb!

It looks like it was cut with a laser machine!

Great work, my friend.

Very nice. Well done. The frame, simple as it is, is very appropriate.

Thank you all for the comments. Bob(KC), those comments coming from you mean a lot. I’m not sure about the laser though. Rod – I’ll do that sometime. I agree Monte, Wile is in the future somewhere.
