While I was at the Scrollsaw picnic I bought this book called Simply Wood, by Roshaan Ganief. I has some neat projects that have simple clean lines. I liked them. So I made a couple of the projects. This is the first one…

Its 4 seperate pieces that make one full picture, made of Baltic Birch. Each piece is 8”x8”x5/8”. They are finished with semi-gloss polyurethane. I used key-hole hangers on the back. The Koi are cut out to expose Red Mahogany stain behind.

They were fun to make. Thanks for looking.

Very nice, almost yin & yang like. Having recently tried some scroll sawing, I’m always amazed at how precise you are able to make your cuts.

This piece also, like the butterfly, is a new style for you, and i really like it.
Well done, interesting composition, and very well executed crafting!
It will be interesting to watch you use this new style you’ve learned from the book in other things you put together.

keep up the good work,
M
