This is the second project made out of the Simply Wood book, by Roshaan Ganief.

I wanted to add the horse to the collection. Thought I would put them together since they look so much alike in style.

This is also made of Baltic Birch it measures 11” x 15” x 5/8”. That includes all the overhangs. The bottom piece is 9” wide. The finish is semi-gloss poly. I used a key-hole hanger.

Thanks for looking.

I made one of these a while ago, and did a few other pieces in this style. Yours looks great. Did you figure out a good way to hang it, a few of mine were crooked the first few times I tried to hang them.
Awesome job

I studied this piece pretty hard last Saturday in the co-op gallery we both display our work in. It’s really pretty, very well crafted, can’t figure out quite how it’s accomplished….which is cool, and I like this style a lot. Well done, I think customers will like this style as well.

This is great!

I feel I need to guy the Roshaan’s book.

I am pretty sure I lack your talent.
