  • Hawk in flight

    This fretwork hawk was cut from Purpleheart wood and mounted on a board that was finished with hammered aluminum paint.

    Sweeeeet work Dick, tell us more about that hammered aluminum paint.
    Not to complain, but sure wish the photo was a tad larger.

      I agree with you, Wood Dog...the photo is too small. After I saw that, I posted it in the Scroller Gallery because you can post larger photos there. Thanks for the nice comment. Dick

        Dick, looks great but wish it was lighter or brighter can't see all the great detail I am sure is there in the hawk.
        What size is it, it sure fills up that piece of wood. Thanks for sharing it.

          Sorry, Jim, wish the photo was brighter. The wood finished a rich deep purple color. The overall size of the project is 14" x 16". Dick

            WD and Jim, I'm going to try to post another photo to clarify your observations.

                As always Dick, a great piece of work. Does hammered aluminum paint mean that its textured spray paint? On another point, I found that by left clicking on a photo it increases the size of the photo.

                        Thanks everyone for the great comments. Chuck D, I did not design this fine pattern. It was drawn by my friend Ted "Buzz" Buzzelli. He has given me permission to send it to anyone who would like a copy. Just send me your email address in a private message.

                          Very beautiful work Dick. The backer board really makes the purpleheart pop.

                              nice job, it looks great...

                              Dick, I just can't imagine cutting that hawk out of purple heart, the piece of purple heart I have is like cutting steel!
