Owls on a Line Scrollwork

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!

Cheers!

Yes I can see the smiles on everyone that looks at that sine Bob…I like it as well. Years ago I saw one a bit like yours, but it had Cows all over it…I think it was painted not scrolled like yours. Did you use a sprial or flat blade to cut this?

Thanks for all the nice comments!

Larry, I used a #2 spiral blade. Just a tad too wide for a flat blade to make it a comfortable cut.

Cheers!

They’re cool and adorable, like the use of the live edge and the dark background. Great work!

i’m not usually a fan of scroll projects, but I really like this one. Way to work the design into the natural wood elements. High five!
