The Boss, in all his young glory!
This work was ordered by a friend of my Mother’s to give as a gift. I love creating works for this purpose!
She was very specific on which image of Bruce she wanted, which made my job fairly easy – at least until it came to created the pattern – doh!
I finished the pattern and it just didn’t have any life to it – at first. The customer then suggested I include the window blind and that was what it took!
Pattern took around two hours total to create – the cutting was done a bit here and there over a couple of weeks.
It was really nice to have another scrollwork to do – I have a BUNCH of projects, but none of them involve much work on the scrollsaw and I missed it. This was a true joy to create and the customer loves the work. Win Win
Piece is cut into Baltic Birch Ply and measures around 12 inches square.
Finish is a coating of lemon oil and a backing of thick felt.
