This was another " spare time " project. It measures 48″ × 12″.
A little backstory on the material.
This piece of cedar was cut down as a tree by me. Then it was sent through a " wood mizer ". Or a small wood mill. I then chose this piece, really at random. Mostly because it was knotted and cracked.
It’s been planed sanded and routed. The usual. The name is cut into the wood with a router, Freehand.
Like most of my projects i used resin pour for the finish. Comes out spectacular.
The climbing lion’s are cut from black and red trophy metal. I used a jewelers saw, and a truckload of patients. Being as i used the stacking method for this cut.
To do a stack cut; first i had to put the two " face " of the metal together. Then tape the whole thing solid. Then put masking tape on one side. Then glue the pattern on to the side with the tape. Used white glue. Works well on the masking tape. Then i just proceded to drill small holes in the " waste " metal. To start the jewelers blade in.
