I love cutting word art and lettering. Last year I decided to create these word pieces that spell “Slainte” which is translated to “health.”

With the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, I thought they would be appropriate.

The words are cut from 3/4” maple and 3/4” poplar.

The maple pieces are brushed with mineral oil, and then sprayed with shellac. The poplar pieces are painted on just the fronts with different shades of green acrylic paint.

I like the loose letters, as they can be scattered on a shelf or even cut from thin stock and placed in a wreath.

The pattern is available on my site here: http://www.sheilalandrydesigns.com/product/SLD406

Thanks for looking!
