This pattern is one that I have had for quite awhile and now that I have made it my husband doesn’t think he will let me get rid of it. In other words it will not leave the place. I just laugh when he does that its nice that he likes my projects too. I was going to make this where it could be hung from either side, but then I put the recessed footprints in and that made it a one sided picture.

This piece of wood is spalted Hackberry. Where the wood actually starts at the top it measures 6 1/2”, at the bottom 11” x 5/8” thick. I did soak it in boiled Linseed oil and boy did that take forever to dry. Then I sprayed poly on top.

The author of the patter is Rick. I do not know Rick’s last name, but I sure like the way the pattern turned out.

Thanks for looking.

Outstanding job! I always enjoy seeing your work. I would think this would be very popular here in Colorado.

Absolutely fantastic! Incredible detail! Simply outstanding! Love the tracks at the bottom. I can understand why it is not leaving your house. I used to bowhunt back in the 80s; and, that bow reminds me of the Jennings Arrowstar and quiver I had on my setup. Thanks for sharing.

Wow! I always wondered how difficult it would be to cut out something on wood similar to that. It looks wonderful! Love your work
