John Wayne is always a good picture, most everyone knows who he is. This is a good pattern.

The frame is made of barn wood, the portrait is made of Baltic Birch and finished with a light coat of spray poly.

This pattern came from Gary Brownings new web site, I have always liked Gary Brownings patterns. He is on my list of favorites.

Thanks for looking.

Good job—very nicely done. And, yes you can certainly recognize the “Duke”.

Cool frame also.

Nicely done – your work is always nice though!

The pattern is a rather good one as well – I will have to check out Gary’s site.

I was gonna make a “Pilgrim” joke, but Jim beat me to it. ;-)

That’s good one, Kelly. I like it!!..............Jim

I was going to make the Rooster Cogburn statement : Fill your hand you…............................
I see they have a pattern of the Duke as Rooster on that site.

Where we stay in Casa Grande, Az, there is a golf course and hotel there called Francisco Grande and the Duke had a permanent suite there on the top floor and they played winter league base ball in the back lot. He also had a big cotton plantation west of there.
