This piece was ordered to be used as a “Thank You” present – I love doing projects for this purpose as it pleases more than just the client! :-)
During the planning phase, I was told the person loved owls, so I found a bunch of images of them and we agreed on these “cartoony” styled owls.
Once I had the pattern down, I found a piece of cherry that had a dark line running across the middle and arranged the four owl like they are sitting on a wire.
The cherry used was milled with my bandsaw around two years ago and was stacked at the roofline of my lumber shed to dry.
Overall, the piece measures 16×9 inches and is around 1/4” thick.
Finish, as usual, consists of a soak in lemon oil and a backing of thick felt.
I think this piece wound up being very cute!
