This is the finished project of a stack cutting that I had started before Christmas that I had forgotton about. Not being able to stand unfinished items, I worked on them yesterday. On my blog I describe what happened in this venture ,but there just isn’t enough room here. LOL! Let’s just say that if it could go wrong, it did.It was enough to keep a person from ever going back in there shop! And like my bear project, it amazes me just what language can come out of my mouth when there’s no one around to hear me! LOL! But here is one of the 3. The frame is not made by me and the rest is just the back of a piece of paneling for the horse and dog. I added some intarsia grass in front and in back of the horse to try to make it 3 dimensional. However several times yesterday I almost just made it an interesting Frisbee for my dog’s!

PEACE!!! Allison

Hi Allison,

I have often said that there are no mistakes in woodworking only opportunities to add details to the project. I really don’t see any problem with the project. The process of creating something like this would make an interesting blog as, to be honest with you, I wouldn’t even know where to begin.

This is a interesting project. Thanks for sharing.

I like it, I always have liked horses and dogs. It is a great piece of art. Keep up the good work! You could make these with other animal themes as well or just about anything. I like the frame too..
Ok Allison, Just checked some of your work, mighty fine stuff. I like the “Dragon”, the “Red Tailed Hawk” is bitchen too!

Hello Allison this piece looks great to me. It looks like litigious work and you did a great job

Your shaping on the horse is very good. I’m not sure what the problem was but you seem to have overcome it rather well. Many people have a hard time with the nuances and subtities of the horse.
