This picture is has some elements from more than one pattern. I kind of put my own little twist on it. What can I say, it fit the piece of wood I had picked out.

The wood itself is Oak and is 3/4” thick. It was a little hard to cut beings how it looks to be an end piece near the tree. It has some bark still on the edges and the other edge is bark free, but I did not square it off. I like working with what edges the wood has already if I can.

The finish is a light coat of laquer and then wax. The pattern of the Elk is from Gary Browning and then I threw in some tree tops.

Hope you enjoy looking. I love sharing.

That looks great. I have wanted to try something like this on a piece of wood I have. You have given me inspiration.

Nice! I know some people here in Colorado that would love it. I need to get busy and try my hand at using slabs.

Very realistic elk and background. This is one of the best scrolling pictures I have seen, and that natural edge
of the wood just adds to the look. When I get a little better with the scroll saw, I will have to make one of these for my middle son, which may cause requests from his siblings. Thank you for sharing.
