  • Cowboy Boot with Wildflowers

    JGR's Cowboy Boot with Wildflowers

    11 different woods:
    Padauk, Walnut, Curly Maple, Yellow-heart, Purple-heart, Bubinga, Mahogany, Aspen, Poplar, Aromatic Cedar, and WRC for the background.

    Wood burned the barbwire (first for me)
    Freehand cut the border with my band saw and then routed a 1/2 cove to inlay the rope into.

    I cheated a little by doing a couple of different things, The two brown eyed susan's are the same cut I used a 4/4 thickness and then just cut the pieces in half then flipped one over, I could do that because of my other cheat.... instead of inlaying the pieces into the background I just glued them on top.

    Thanks for looking!

                The wood is curly maple and I used Old Masters gel finish, I really like using it I bought it a little reluctantly as it is kinda high but I found out a little goes a long way so I am very happy with the application ease and appearance and will continue to use it.

                  I love the background for that with the rope trim - Totally Country!

                  Great job shaping those flowers - they look like you picked them from the garden.

                      That is a beautiful piece. The shaping, wood selection and finish are very very nicely done.

                            Well, yesterday, I shot my 18 in the morning. The grands came over and I got one of em to try it out. I had to demonstrate so I got another 12 or so in. Last night I finished up with 90 for the day. Going to challenge myself to one hundred arrows a day for one hundred days. Made an excel spreadsheet...

                            For me to write something like this with my woodburner, even with the fine ball tip pens, is just not possible for me. The variations in the wood grain really complicate things.

                            A few weeks ago Elliott was looking around and saw a bow and arrows in the rafters in the basement. PopPop I didn’t know you had a bow and arrow. I don’t. It’s Mimi’s. Been a long time since I used it. Maybe I should get it out again.
