  • "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

                      Can't get mine yet in Arizona, although I'd love to. Don't have enough vaccines here, so we are still focused on high exposure 'essential workers' and people over 75. I have a sister in assisted living with hospice people and care givers that come and go everyday...they still haven't received the...

                      My wife and I got vaccinated this morning. I had worried that there would be long lines. But, the state of Indiana seems to have gotten it right. We went online 10 days ago and scheduled an appointment. We got there as nd no line and went thru the check in, got our shots, waited 15 minutes...
