This is a project I created at my Mother’s request and occupies a wall in her guest bedroom.
I made this in April of last year and forgot to post it – better late than never, I suppose…......
As far as scrollsaw portraits go, this is by FAR the largest piece I have created. It measures 29×14 inches and is 3/16” thick.
I was lucky to find a solid piece of cherry at this size and even more lucky to be able to resaw this without any warping or cracking!
The entire top sports a live edge as well – bonus!
Finish consisted of a coating of lemon oil to bring out all the great color and depth in the cherry and then a few coats of spray lacquer to give a bit of a shine.
I just visited a week or so ago and it has now oxidized to a really nice dark brownish-red color.
