I’ve been creating new cedar scrimshaws lately for a few commissions, and also stock for the store in Cary.
These pieces are inspired by a good friend’s suggestion after seeing some of my cardinals. As usual, they are crafted with aromatic eastern cedar, and the artwork is original. I used pastels, color pencils and ink after cutting and sanding the wood to prepare for the artwork. The only thing engraved on these cedar scrimshaws are the signatures.
After milling a few logs lately….
I have plenty of canvasses to do things like, maybe this…all on one piece…but with varying species of birds and flowers.
Here are some ‘process’ milling pics from yesterday. Log #2 is under my belt. The Alaskan chainsaw mill is working great!
