I had this piece of wood that I picked out from the sawmill. It is a piece of Locust, so pretty with all the colors, it has orange, pink, yellow. This is the second time I have cut this pattern. The first one was a donation to the Elk Foundation.
This piece is long enough that I had to use spiral blades. It sure was hard cutting. I planed it down to 5/8” and I went through so many blades I didn’t think that I would have enough to finish. I had to call Mike at Flying Dutchman and place an order. It measures 12” wide in the widest area, 41” long x 5/8” thick. I have to point out, if you look close at the second picture you’ll see a hole by the hoof of the elk. There was a knot that vacated and I just left the hole. I thought about making it look like he was stepping in a puddle, making it bigger, but I don’t want to ruin it. Tell me what you think.
I don’t know who is the creator of this pattern. I got the pattern from Scroller LTD a long time ago and it doesn’t reveal an author. If anyone can let me know I sure would like to give them the credit.
Thanks for looking.
