  • Bassett anyone?

    Here's one of my patterns. It's of my 1st. bassett Hercules. As usual 1/4" oak... 5" x 10-1/2". His ears would have been any longer, I would have had to tack another piece of wood to the project..

      I love that, Pop. You've done a very good job of capturing his expression - nice work around the eyes and nose area especially - and those ears just make me smile...

      That's a great example of what can be achieved with (relatively) few cuts ...

        Nice job there. Odd size, though. Do you plan on framing it?

            Hercules

            How ironic. My Mom had a Basset hound she also named Hercules! She would pin his ears back with a clothes pin when she fed him to keep his ears out of his food.

                Looks OK on the wall w/o a frame but it might be a thought. Nice thing about our pictures being made from wood.... it's easy to grab some pieces of trim and make a fake frame.

                  Buzz...food wasn't the only thing that caused us to pin his ears back. As a pup his ears were longer than his head rose above ground. When we went out to play we'd clip em' back so he wouldn't trip while he was running and wind up rolling across the yard. Then when he came back in he'd have to get a drink and his ears would carry more water through the house than made his mouth. But they're neat...we're on our third.

                    I've been wondering if 'framing' a piece with decorative inlay strips would look good.

                      You mean like the strips you can buy from Rockler? Never even thought of trying something like that...HMMMMM

                          Woodgrain is like a straw sucking in the pigment, but I think you did a good job on a complex piece. Lots of patience for this pattern.

                          Thanks Rolf,
                          I actually tried painting the inside of the cuts before removing the pattern and tape. I initially used packing tape because I was out of painters tape. When I sprayed the cuts, apparently the paint bled into the fibers of the wood. But I have to say I have been redeemed by my wife....

                          Nice project, I really like the design. You did use a tough piece of material, I would normally suggest cutting at least 3 layers of 1/8 BB because you will get requests of them. I am curious as to why you got some black bleeding into the grain? Is this mounted on a black backer ?

                          This is my latest project and I'm still up in the air about it. The wood was reclaimed from a table that someone had thrown away. It is 3/4 MDF with veneer on both sides. The project is 11 x 14 and is pretty heavy. The pattern was from "Grandpa" and I believe his real name is Paul. I used...
