I never noticed until I finished this (my 2nd) wolf portrait that the saw teeth are backwards. I have actually made the mistake of installing a blade on my table saw like this and believe me it doesn’t work. thanks for looking.

Guess it depends on whether your TS is right tilt or left tilt? Looks good to me, but my TS is left tilt.

Looks good to me – the wolf would be facing to the right on my table saw.

Great scrollworking as well!

You MIGHT want to consider a darker background though – it would really make the wolf “pop”.

It still looks nice! A small technicality that doesn’t deter from the beautiful workmanship.

If anyone comments, just tell them you used wood from Australia which causes it to appear backwards because of the Coriolis Effect.

Blinding ‘em with science. Or something…
