My wife is what you might call “Just Shy of a Crazy Cat Lady”.
I have already made her quite a few scrollwork portraits of rather famous internet kitties.
She needed a name plate for her desk, so I used a technique I blogged on a while ago to transfer an image of her name made up entirely of cats to a piece of quartersawn sycamore.
The piece measures around 15 inches long and is just under 2 1/2 inches high and around 7/8 of an inch thick.
I used a simple round-over bit to give the edge some character.
A wiping of tung oil and some spray lacquer and it was finished.
My wife loved it – that’s the important part!
