It’s really a nice piece of work. I like the simplicity of it and it contains a lot of meaning.

Thank you all very much for the kind comments. This is, truly, one of my personal favorites. Yes, as Candy says, it was cut rather than burned. It has a black backer. It was not a difficult cut to make but the visual appeal is stunning. I also made the frame out of a piece of walnut (one of my favorite woods but very hard for me to get here on the Canadian Parries). I will surely be making more of these for all of my other Grandpa friends.

Have your say...
