Rustic Star

This is a very simple star that I cut out on the scroll saw using barn wood. Instead of using a wide piece of barn wood, I took and edge glued some narrower pieces to make it more stable. Its about 1/2" thick and roughly 9×11″.



Those lines and inside corners are incredibly crisp, I can’t help but wonder if you didn’t clean them up perhaps a little too much considering the rustic nature of the board. Take the edge on the left, a little jagged and imperfect, it suits the material.
This is just my opinion, so please don’t be offended.
