  • Something New for Me

    As some of you know, I tend to design slightly detailed portraits as a rule. I'm trying to branch out a little bit from basic portraits. This was a Christmas gift for one of my nieces that I had to deliver today. I used 3/8" oak with 1/4" oak for the backer with through tenon joinery. I had a tough time getting a decent picture of it. One is an overall view and the other is looking at the side.
    My niece was thrilled (thank goodness).
    One more gift to go, yay!

      Thanks Dale. Ya gotta luv them great Danes, some of them get so big you could put a saddle on them and ride 'em.
      I think I'll play with the photo of it to see how it looks without the bottom. I had 2 things in mind doing them that way, to add stability to it when hung and to keep it symmetrical. Thanks for the suggestion!

                Thanks all for the kind words.
                To answer your question Ian, yes, the horse is one of my patterns (designed specifically for this project).

                        First off how thick is the board you cut?
                        When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
                        that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
                        for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

                        I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

                        Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

                        Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it)....to make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...

                        I would have to agree that I've not personally made many designs from the magazine, as I have progressed to making most of my own designs. However, I do enjoy some of the reviews and other articles---as well as checking out techniques of others. I debated as well, but decided to renew. Now I just...
