Project Information

Two Horses in the Meadow. I cut this scroll saw pattern into a walnut cutoff that has some interesting grain. I tried to keep as much of the natural edges and that little knob as possible to add some "in the woods" charm. The base is walnut with a bit of left over scape from cutting out the pattern, that I thought looked like bushes or rock. The finish is Watco danish oil.

The live edges and dimensional work are quite captivating. It has a wonderful lost in the woods feel to it.

The shape of the whole thing reminds me of the body of a bear. I like it.

My thanks to everyone for the wonderful comments! As many of you have said the wood is very unique. Many times I have a strange piece of wood that I really love and then I spend the next few months or year trying to think of what to do with it. Lately I have been combining different techniques and forms. This has a flat scroll saw surface but natural edges and the knot that sticks up. With most of the pattern left flat I wanted to see how carving the horses a bit would look. I like the effect of flat and rounded. I want to say that I get tons of ideas from all the Lumberjock projects I see. You all ROCK!

A definite show piece. I really like the carving addition to the horses as it gives a much more finished look. Beautiful job.
