Default front door topper

Made this for the top of my front entrance door. Seen something similar and thought it would look nice hanging over my door. Going to make 2 side rectangles to to hang over the door lite's along side this piece. Same theme... Used Red Oak for the frame and plywood back and routed the panal. Wood used for the oak leaves are...black walnut..oak...cedar...mahogany..maple. I cut the leaves on the scroll saw and carved them to shape . I bought the acorns from a craft store(easier then carving myself) and painted them with an airbrush.

That's very impressive. Be sure to post a photo after it has been installed so we can ogle it in situ.

Second impressive.

Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.

Nice, very nice - I admire talents I am not gifted with and I admire your carving.

Nice Day - Baker

Very nice, How did you make the leaves? I know you said with a scroll saw. Did you also use a dremmel tool to get the 3d look? Carve the leaf veins?
That is if you want to let your secret out. :-)

Agree with jw2170 and Jim Douglas +4
