Outstanding Work

Grizz, that is just outstanding. You have many hours in it I know. I know someone that does that kind of work.
It takes lots of hours with hammer and tool to get that done.

You should be proud.

That is absolutely amazing.

That is absolutely amazing. That is the kind of work I want to do when I grow up (53 years and still growing...).
Whenever I just about get the confidence to show some of my work here something like this shows up and I realize I need to wait a few more years.

I really like your artwork.

I really like your artwork. I have been trying to learn similar skills but not there yet. I also like the frame. It looks like you burned and wire brushed it and left in the natural imperfections. A pleasing combination.

Don, I watch for old

I watch for old beams and such to use for the frames of my repousse'. I usually just wire brush them to remove loose paint and bring out the grain and then seal it with linseed oil. Thanks for the comments.

The reason for my comment is

The reason for my comment is I used to go camping, do a chainsaw sculpture, throw it into the campfire, put it out, wire brush it to create the highs and lows in the grain of the wood. Repeat as necessary. It is a way of speeding up what nature does for us. At home I use BBQ fluid to burn the wood. I think wood combined metal is a good combination, and I hope to learn more.
