I had this piece of wood and just had to find a picture to cut on it. I just loved what turned out to be the bottom of this picture, the live edge.

The picture is made out of 3/4” Walnut with some burl at the bottom. It measures 12”x9” from the widest parts. I finished it with semi-gloss spray laquer and then wax. The pattern is by Lora Irish.

Thanks for looking and any comments.

Great Job Kelly. You really have an eye for getting the right pattern for the wood. Or is it the wood for the pattern :)

Lovely work as always, Kelly!

You are correct – that live edge really makes the piece. Your great scrolling also helps a tad though! ;-)

Thanks for sharing this!
