I made this sign for my father’s birthday. The main body of the sign is old weathered-grey cedar fence board and the border is made from walnut sap wood with the bark still attached. the backing is 1/4 in. poplar. I free hand sketched the scroll saw pattern so it’s a bit messy and hap-hazard,but was still able the see it well enough to follow on the saw :P. I didn’t clear coat the wood for fear of giving it a plastic looking shine. Mostly because I prefer the natural look of wood grain.

-- The wood often tells me what it wants to be... great... now the voices in my head have company....;-P
