  • Christmas gift for wife



    I cut this for my wife for Christmas, she loves morning glories and hummers. The pattern is by Mike Williams. Found it in the Sept. 2006 issue of Creative Woodworks & Crafts. Cut from 1/4" BB plywood, 1/8" luan backer and oak frame. Finished with Formby's tung oil, 11' X 14".

    I also have that pattern, but it looks so much better when it's cut into wood. Great job Mick!

          Mick, I gotta admit, your response was better than any joke I've heard in a long time. I don't normally laugh out loud, but I just couldn't help myself this time.

            First off how thick is the board you cut?
            When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
            that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
            for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

            I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

            Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

            Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it)....to make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...

            I would have to agree that I've not personally made many designs from the magazine, as I have progressed to making most of my own designs. However, I do enjoy some of the reviews and other articles---as well as checking out techniques of others. I debated as well, but decided to renew. Now I just...
