  • "For my Brothers!"

    Don't post a lot, but do look around often. Had this pattern laying around for a while and have forgotten where I found it, but finally got it cut and framed. Thinking about recutting with wood that is not so wild grained (maybe BB instead of oak). Thanks for looking.

    Hi Teacher, like the cuttings very much, the subject matter is great. I think a lighter
    would enhance the cuttings a lot. Very good. Thanks for showing.

      Great cutting teach,
      i think a less grained wood like bb would definetly enhance the pic,
      not doing much
      and busy doing it

      having fun making sawdust.

        Nice job. I agree about the wood choice due to the grain.

          I would say, in my humble opinion, is that in this particular piece, the wood grain looks pretty cool.

          But I stick with BBply for portaiture.

          Beautiful piece by the way...!!! Very deep...

            Cool picture! I rather like the grain, looks like a sand storm. I was wondering if a bright background (like bright red) possibly would make it stand out more.

              Hi Don, I usually use a maple or birch for wood with portraits but for this pattern I rather like the heavy grain. Thanks for sharing. Steve

                    I recon that a dramatic subject calls for a dramatic grain...

                    But that's just my humble opinion

                      Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry

                      Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
                      HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...
