Very attractive. How did you make the textured sections?

Cool, I would like some of that gumbo if it turns on that kind of creative switch. :)

Thanks guys… the best thing about any project is that it gives me ideas that I can use for the next one (and some things I definitely should NOT use on another one.

I use a Foredom carver, a Dremel and some light sandblasting. For me it is important to practice on some scraps before I use a new technique on a project. Many ideas have never got past the “scrap” stage.

hey Tom…actually I am working on a box with this combination of this techniques. Tricky part is the micro sandblasting to keep the texture separate from the smooth areas. Gotta experiment to diuscover what can and can-not work. (I discovered quite a few that fit into the can-not category…bnut that is how I learn new ideas)

This is a beautiful wall plaque. It’s a real eye catcher.

Trying new things is what it’s all about. Keeps the juices flowing. Gumbo never hurts :) especially if it has smoked turkey necks.

BOOM! Nailed it.
Very well done.
