Hello everyone I designed and made this piece for Malayna the DJ at the station I am doing a project with.
Her parents 40th Anniversary is coming up and she wanted me to make something for them, so I designed this for her and she loves it. The 40 is the puzzel and it is all made with sycamore wood. I reallly like the grain on this piece of wood.
Thanks for stopping bye Dennis

Really cool. How long does it take to cut that out. Patience is a premium.

It is finished with Watco Danish Oil Natural and it took about three hours to cut forget the design time.
