  • Wolf

    I have been working on this Wolf for off and on for a year and I still don't have it framed.
    I've had this pattern for a long time don't know where it came from, it had some floaters in it. You sure have to check patterns some of don't work when you get.
    It's 1/8" BB I don't know what I will do with it, I guess put it in my stack of pictures

        Bob, that is great. I can see why you worked on it off and on for a year.

          That's pretty awesome looking. If your framing it, my idea is to use a tree branch with bark still on it...try and find an old dryed up one in the woods someplace. resaw the appropriate log in half. make a somewhat square frame my lap jointing the logs, similar to a log house. It won't be easy, you'll have to do some scribing. If you have a band saw, you can rough cut close to a fit, and then carve out the rest a little at a time with a knife, dremel, or angle grinder. The joints don't have to be perfect, just decent. Just a thought, but imagine how that would compliment your wolf, and the value you could add to it.
          You can spray poly on bark, it'll help brighten it up, helps it to not dry out too much and fall off the wood, and helps with cleaning, but it takes alot of coats. The wood does need to be reasonable dry of course. Shagbark hickory would be the ultimate, but the toughest to do, a maple or ash would be alot easier because the bark is smoother.
          either way, whatever you do will be great I'm sure...I can't imagine the amount of work it took to make that wolf.

            Very elegant. Your background shows it off quite nicely, too. What did you use?

                  The background is 1/8" baltic birch painted black. It needed a strong background because the wolf itself is pretty weak.

                      Remember you only really need 2 tools: WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the Duct Tape

                          Very nice! Sometimes it's nice to have projects that take a long time to cut. When you get that itch to make some sawdust and don't have anything ready to go, it's always good to have something in the background to fall back on like that. And this one was definitely worth it.
