The patience some of you fellow LJ’ers have to work with these small bits of wood that I usually toss/burn truly impresses me. Great work.

Scraps? What scraps? When you need wood for the little projects they are already close to the right size! Big or small it’s all good wood! And it looks like you turned them into a great looking medallion. Nice work! I have a Big Box of leftovers! Now you got me thinking!!!
Thanks for sharing!

Great looking medallion! Like the uniformity of the details and the color of the wood.

A significant piece of art!

I Never throw scraps away either John, but I certainly don’t think of using them to create such stunning designs as this one! Welcome to LJ.

I’m as impressed as the others! What’s most impressive to me is the fact that you “saw” this in the scraps. I stand and look at a pile and when I go to the drawing board I end up drawing the pile! What was your inspiration that brought this together?
