Hey everyone. It’s been awhile since I’ve posted any pictures. I have been doing some cutting but, it’s mostly been Christmas presents already and I can’t post them yet.

This one is based on Sue Mey’s pattern. I however did it my way , but I am still giving credit where credit is due. At this moment however, I can’t remember where I got the wolf pattern. I will look that up.

I made the wolf out of 1/4” Baltic Birch and the backing is 1/8” Baltic Birch. I used leather to wind around the 3/4” x 3/8” Walnut frame. Leather is also used as a hanger. The finish is spray lacquer.

I enjoyed doing this project.

Thank you for looking.

I think you did a great job on that. I have one of her patterns like that only it is a deer. You make me want to get to it.

Great job on a very challenging pattern. I also made one of these and was going to try and sell it but I liked it so much it’s one of the few projects I have kept for myself. Yours is beautiful.
