    Another place for the pattern is

    Doing that with flat blades is a great job and to me much more difficult. That is the type of pattern I always use spirals on.

    Thanks for all the nice comments.

    Dale thanks for posting that website, I didn't get it from there but that is the guy that designed it.

    Bil, I didn't use spirals on it. The only time I use is when the pattern is to big for my saw.

    Bob,

    I have always been partial to wolf images, yet I have never cut one.
    Yours is certainly an inspiration. Nice work!!

    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.

    Jeff, I like your idea but the frame, I'll look around and see what can find.
    Thanks

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

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

    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.
