    image.jpeg Hope this. Is easier on the neckI cut the "In For A Landing" pattern again This is cut on a piece of ash not the duck wood as I had previously used. Please check and compare with the previous cutting. What a difference the wood makes

    Beautiful work David. Very detailed and the shadows it creates add a lot top the depth of the piece. Fantastic!

    @Kevin my fault for the pictures being that direction. I will make a effort to not do them that way again , I do not know how to change it here so may need to take a new pic the other direction. It hurts my neck as well sorry about that. I added a different picture hope it is easier on our necks.

    David your work is worth a little neck pain! I just wasn't sure if it were just my end or not. Let me know if you need any help. Orientation has to happen before upload.

    But I don't want the discussion to detract from the thread. PM or let's talk on the telly if you need any help. :ok:

    David, maple is one of my favorite woods for scrolling, soft maple is really cool too! Some woods are just to hard and prone to splintering or chipping, too brittle.

    I always admire this kind of work. No idea how one can have so much patience to do this. Outstanding!
