Beginner/Intermediate Level 4″ wide x 5" high 28 pieces
Raccoon peeking out of a tree knot hole.
I used the following 3/4” thick wood for this project;
Spalted Hackberry for the "LT", Spalted Maple for the "MD", thermally modified Walnut for the dark pieces, and a small piece of Pink Ivory wood for the tongue.
I used 1/2" thick Western Red Cedar for the tree portion on the front and the back of the ornament. I used the WRC because it is light weight.
1/4" Walnut dowels for the eyes. I used a modified hand screw clamp to drill the dowels.
A Wonder Wheel and a 6" diameter wire brush was used for adding texture. I attached the wire brush to my bench grinder, be sure to wear eye protection.
Suggested Blades: Gold #5 for Western Red Cedar, Pine, or any softwood. Platinum Plus #3, Platinum #5, TLB #5 for the Aspen and Basswood. PLP #2/0, or TLB #2/0 to cut the interior lines (after the exterior lines are cut).
6" wire brush attached to the bench grinder to add a rough texture to the exterior.
Handscrew clamp modified (cut notch) to hold the dowels for drilling.
