This was the first real cutout i made. The wood was donated to our school by a local sawmill. I really like the look of the rough cut with the bark on the side.

Nice job. A slab always makes stuff like this look great

the bark and the way the right side is “out of the box”, both make that a great 1st effort

How cool! Must have been a bit of a pain to do all of that scroll work, but it came out looking really neat. It kinda makes me want to see it bound to a book as the front cover. Wooden covers! That would be cool, too.

I’m not sure you could have fitted that design to the wood any better. Like John mentioned, coming out of the box really sets it off and the use of negative space made me do a double take. The subject matter is totally congruent with the piece of wood chosen.

that looks really nice. I love the bark on the one edge, it really works with the subject.

This one is my favorite because the arm comes out of the side boundary of the piece.
