  • Morning Glory

    I just finished this picture today. It was designed by Mike Williams and the story said it was his first design. I think that is pretty good for a first timer.
    I reduced the size so it would fit an 8 X 10 frame that I bought at WalMart.
    I put a cherry finish on it and wish I'd not done that, but little late for that.
    It is 1/8" BB with a black felt background.

    I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me!

          Thanks Bob, for posting the pic. I really like it, and I agree with you, that's a fine pattern for a first one. Pretty good cutting too. And the colors not that bad.

              Love it. Looks great.

              Love the hummingbird. We have "family" of them visiting our feeder this time of year. There is between 3 and 5 of them best we can figure.

              I love to watch them guard the feeder and then play dive bomber. It's great, cheap entertainment. But then maybe I'm just easily amused.

                We have 2 feeders and they are really fighting over them now. It won't be long and they will be gone from here.

                      Nice work Bob,

                      If you don't like the finish, you could always use a gel stain on top.
                      Or you could use a glaze mixed with some stain, or...
                      Give a coat of shellac first and then do the above, or...

                      There are many ways to fix, change, finish creatively, whatever you want to call it

                      The only thing you should do: try it on a piece of scrap first, rather than last. Meaning that if you don't try it on a piece of scrap first, your cut may become one

                      Enjoy yourself.

                      PS, When taking a picture, you should remove the glass: makes for distrating reflections sometimes

                      Respectfully,

                          I never thought about the glass until I went back and looked at my post. Maybe I will remember it the next time.

                          Thanks everybody for all the nice comments.

                            Thats another great tip Marcel, thanks.
                            I just had a fit with my last picture because of the reflection from the glass.
                            I had to take the picture at an angle and then did a little mor cleanup in PSP.

                              Excellent job, beginner or not. I think it's a stunning picture, and a nice pattern by whoever you got it from. Personal opinion is that I don't like the frame. That would look great in a segmented elipse, or a free flowing frame. I have found myself making awesome pictures in the beginning, but my frames where boring. Now I make sure to put as much work into the frame as I do the picture.
                              Great Job, you definitely have a nack for this, so keep it up.

                              Here's another thought...maybe that would look awesome as a plaque..say mounted on a chunk of light colored burl with the bark still on it ?

After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...

                                I remember Russel well. I think he went back to the days of Free4all.

                                FYI: I just completed an index of the Charity Ornament book from SSV and Birchbank designed quite a few ornaments.

                                Denny, you are correct, his name is Russell. While he may not have been here in years, he pops in at the Village forum from time to time. I just checked and he hasn’t been there since July. I would suggest that you send him a PM perhaps through the Village and see if you get a response.

                                I think his name is Russel. I checked and he was last on the forum in 2014. I had a request for one of his patterns. Fortunately I still had a copy. Anyone heard from him?
