  • Mom ..... Last pix I promise

    I really liked Al's pattern. These are three versions but it's one of those that will lend itself to any number of projects.
    I used 1/2" poplar for the text on all three.
    Two of the bases are 3'4" pine with table saw slots front and rear. One I left open, one I inlayed a strip of butternut and the third is oak with red cedar in the slots and red ceder knots as end caps. The butterflies are an assortment of woods from Larry. The ones that are backed I used 1/32 BB colors with acrylic paint and or highlighters (markers).
    The black markings on one butterfly I branded with a course deck screw heated with a torch.
    Finished with 2 coats of shellac and 3 of clear acrylic sanded to 400 before the last coat.
