  • Janette's Bobcat

    Wow, this has has taken me a very long time to complete. When It came out in the magazine I knew I had to make this one. I had got started on it right away, getting it cut then set it aside. I knew the shaping was going to be the key with this project. Well the time was finally right and I got back to it. It is hard to tell from the pictures all the attention to detail I have in there. I spent 3 days in the shop shaping it, probably a total of 20 hours. I dug deep into the reserve lumber pile for the woods I wanted to use. The bobcat itself is english walnut. The rocks were from a burly claro walnut board. The log is some wild grained cocobolo. The tree is spalted maple, Janette's looked so cool with it so I used it as well. The face has a variety with a majority of some reddish quartersawn sycamore. The rest is some hickory and rosewood and curly maple ears trimmed out in rosewood. All the stripes are rosewood as well. I wanted the legs to stand out with the most figured part of the english walnut board. So I am proud to present my version of the
    BILLYBOB CAT.
    This one is not going anywhere other then on a wall in our house. I knew it when I 1st saw it in the mag, I have to make one for us. This is one of my favorite patterns that I have ever seen, and deserved all my abilities. I hope you approve Janette.

          Absolutely beautiful. Great selection and matching of woods & colors.
          The good woodworker does not craft the wood for honor. He uses his craft to honor the wood.
