This picture subject is a little different than what I am used to doing. Trying to expand my projects and show my different sides.

The picture does have some delicate pieces in it, you have to be very careful on the sanding. It is made of 1/8” Baltic Birch, 7 1/4” x 9 1/2”. Black matt board for the backer. I did adjust the picture from original size because I had the frame first. I usually make my frames, but a friend was cleaning out the basement and gave me a huge box of frames. The frame is made of Walnut. I did a little light sanding and resprayed it with laquor to refresh the finish already on it.

The pattern is done by John Nelson and it came out of the 2012 Spring issue of Scrollsaw Woodworking & Crafts magazine.
