    Hey Steve,

    That is a pretty awesome pile of leaves. What kind of wood? How thick is the wood? Colored acrylic for the back I assume. How large are they? Where did you get the patterns? How much will people pay for them and what do they do with them? I see you don't have a hole drilled anywhere for hanging them on a wall.

    I know, so many questions. I almost didn't click on the link because leaves didn't sound too exciting. But these are really neat.

          Little Leaves

          Okay, Mike they are all out of 5/8" redoak but they are backed with a painted plywood backer and I am glad that the holes that are in them are not noticable. I got the patterns some from scroller and some from wooden teddybear. They very in size but most are within a ten to twelve inch range at there widest point. As far as cost I get $30.00 each or two for $50.00 and five for $100.00. It all depends on your market area for price. Most people just hang them for wall decorations. Thanks Mike. Gary, sometimes I even wonder if it is skill, patience, addiction or stupidity for why I will cut a collection like this. And we don't need comments on that last part either. Thanks for the vote of confidence. Trout, I believe that these leaves would be a little rough on the lawn mower wouldn't they? Thanks to all, Steve

              Nice collection there Steve!

              "Gary, sometimes I even wonder if it is skill, patience, addiction or stupidity"

              Steve my vote goes for the 1st 3,as to why you do it, you could replace stupidity with the word "fun". That always works for me.

                  Very beautiful work. I love the idea of painted ply (1/8" I assume )for the backer. Much less expensive than colored acrylic and the wall doesn't show through either.

                    Hi George, actually the backer is 3/16" ply and the price was definitly cheaper than acrylic. I get the ply from work that we throw away. So it works out well for me. Thanks for the compliments. Steve

                        Finish on Leaves

                        Hi Dale, I use a high gloss spray lacquer on most all of my projects. Several light coats until I get a high gloss finish. Steve

                                We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
