my wife was looking through my pattern book and decided she wanted this one to go with her still fern plant I had done for her earlier. I was really dreading doing this one for all the details that was involve in it. it proved to be easier than I thought. hope you all enjoy them as I have had burning them.

Another beaut. I think I asked you this before but, do you frame them?

Most of them I do. I make all my own frames out of scrap wood that I have laying around the place. Nothing special just wood I run through my portable router, then cut to the length I need for the frame. Again thank you for your comment. your friend Jim

I have alot of frames to make, but this will have to wait until the weather breaks, and warmer weather sets in to stay. A year and a half ago I became ill to the point where I was admitted into ICU on the critical list, and took me a long time to recover. Due to this illness I cannot take the cold weather at all, and I no longer have a shop or garage I can work
out of. We have moved into a smaller trailor with only a small shed. I will be trying to do a little work out of here but until I can get out there I can still burn as many pictures as I can. I hope to show all of you these when I finish them all. Your Friend Jim

Hove you started your Thorsen Greene and Greene Side table. I want to see a beautiful table done with Wood Burning.

I was just checking out both of your pyrography projects. I particularly like the fruit basket.
