The man that commissioned this piece wasn’t sure what he wanted done. He knew he wanted aTurkey and Deer and that was about it. So my husbband picked out the wood, a end piece of Walnut, and I started picking out patterns. I covered the top of the work table in the shop with patterns and we just went through and picked out the ones that we liked. These are the patterns that we narrowed it down to. Then we only used parts of the patterns that we picked out. Part way through the project my husband took a picture and showed the future owner and he loved what he saw so far and is so excited to see the completed project. He is already talking about ordering another picture.

The picture is 29” long, the bottom measures 12 1/2” wide and the top is 6” x 3/4” thick. Danish oil was used and then clear semi-gloss varnish over that.

The various patterns were made by .. Woodland Turkey – White Tailed Designs, LTD, white tail deer and mule deer- Jeff Zaffino, Elk Meadow- Mike Williams

So when do I get mine? I guess I need to pull my scroll saw off the shelf. Nice detail on all the wildlife.

Did you burn that in or actually cut it out? I have a Laser that I do all of that with so I was just wondering? It looks great. Do you have much luck with your Etsey Site? I’ve never advertised like that???

It is really beautiful, Kelly! Your cutting is so amazing. It is hard to cut such detail on larger pieces like that but you really nailed it. I love everything about it! The natural edge and choice of animals is also very cool. Wonderful project!

This is absolutely fantastic! How on earth do you cut something that big on a scroll saw?
