    Exceptional work, Steve. You were my inspiration for trying a forest leaf design. I've only done 1 so far but I have a couple more patterns and will be doing plenty more in the future. The veining is a pain when you have to make sharp turns but they are kind of fun. I noticed you drill a hole in them for hanging. I attached a sawtooth hanger in the back with weldbond glue. It seems to hold very well and there are no holes showing. Other than that, I hope my future ones look as good as yours. Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks Mike, I never dreamed of be inpiration to anyone. I did try to attach a sawtooth hanger on a couple of my first ones and used a brad nail that was to big. Lesson learned it split. I got discouraged and drilled the hole. After hanging them up though if you use a small nail you don't notice it. Steve

        My thought was that the hole will be noticeable to prospective buyers.

        The squirrel I cut didn't have the room, otherwise I would have drilled the holes and used screws. I use acrylic for all my backers, so with my portraits, I have to use screws. I drill thru the acrylic and barely penetrate the wood. Using a slow speed I can feel as soon as the bit gets thru the acrylic. I'm hoping most of these leaf patterns will work out to where I can use screws. But if not, I will use the glue.

        And being an inspiration should give you a warm fuzzy feeling inside.

          I've cut quite a few of those leaves now too - though not the quantity Steve has .:-) - and like you Mike, I glue a saw tooth to the back. Seems to work fine..

          One thing I did discover is that it isn't a great idea to reduce some of those patterns - I took the mallard duck one down to abot 76% to fit on the wood that I had - the veining became way too close together and I ended up beheading the duck .... Mind you it seems to have glued back on invisibly

          There is some great stuff once again in that new gallery, Steve. I think we must have similar taste in patterns..:-)

            Very nice Steve. It gives me more ideas of things I would like to try. My problem is that I have so many things I want to do that I tend to jump to a new project before I finish one that I am working on.

                Thanks for the kind remarks from everyone. Mike it does give me some pride to learn that I could inspire someone to do something. Bill I have the same problem or addiction of jumping into the next project without finishing the one that I am working on first. Steve

                  is doing great in therapy. His range of motion is about 3 weeks ahead of where they expected him to be. He has zero strength in his hand or arm. He tried to grate some cheese, and he couldn’t hold the grater. The doctor had to do repair stitching on the muscle and that will take the longest to heal....

                  When we started out, it was 45 deg and rain. When we got there it was 44 deg and rain. By the time we left it stopped raining but was 42 deg. and windy. Luckily we are under cover but that doesn’t stop the wind. I sold 4 baskets, Sealife puzzle and a few other things. I moved the coffee grinders...

                  I thought I read you use shrink wrapped bags for your puzzles. Where do you get them from?...
