  • A Portrait of Grandad in the Navy

    Hi Everyone, here is a portrait of my grandad when he was in the navy. It is the only picture that I have known to exist of him as I never knew him. He passed away years before I was born. I thought that it would be a good tribute to capture this in wood. I will see how the family reacts to this one. Any comments or suggestions are welcomed as always. Steve

          Good job! As a young man, there are few character lines to bring out so you did a very good job in converting the photo to a workable pattern.

                Thanks for all of the kind remarks. My uncle, the youngest of grandad's children just saw the photo now he is emailing it all over showing it off. That is what makes it all worthwhile. Steve

                  Woodgrain is like a straw sucking in the pigment, but I think you did a good job on a complex piece. Lots of patience for this pattern.

                  Thanks Rolf,
                  I actually tried painting the inside of the cuts before removing the pattern and tape. I initially used packing tape because I was out of painters tape. When I sprayed the cuts, apparently the paint bled into the fibers of the wood. But I have to say I have been redeemed by my wife....

                  Nice project, I really like the design. You did use a tough piece of material, I would normally suggest cutting at least 3 layers of 1/8 BB because you will get requests of them. I am curious as to why you got some black bleeding into the grain? Is this mounted on a black backer ?

                  This is my latest project and I'm still up in the air about it. The wood was reclaimed from a table that someone had thrown away. It is 3/4 MDF with veneer on both sides. The project is 11 x 14 and is pretty heavy. The pattern was from "Grandpa" and I believe his real name is Paul. I used...
