Who or What is a “Grumpy Cat”????
Grumpy, A.K.A “Tardar Sauce” happens to be the most popular cat on the internet at this particular time. This tiny feline has had quite the life so far. She was born a runt with a few “issues” and a face coloring that makes her look grumpy all the time. Here's the rest of her story, but be warned - you WILL fall in love with her and her brother!
My wife happened to fall in love with Grumpy as soon as she saw her, so I knew eventually I would be cutting her image into a piece of wood. I timed it correctly, and was able to do this for her birthday a couple of days ago – bonus!
Overall, the image measures 7×9 inches and is 1/4” thick. Material is solid poplar resawn from a MUCH larger piece I acquired from the side of the road a few years ago.
Finish consists of a soak in lemon oil and then a backing of thick felt.
My wife loved the piece, BTW – it’s going in to work tomorrow to join the other cuttings I’ve made for her.
