I was asked by my brother-in law if I could make a mermaid for his son. So I found a nice one on Sue Mey's website and purchased the pattern and did a stack cut of it. I put it on two different backgrounds and I'll send my nephew the one on the oval.
The actual mermaid was cut from 1/8" baltic birch with Flying Dutchman Spiral Flat End #3 and finished with Watco Danish Oil Natural.
The backers are pine with Flying Dutchman Ultra Reverse #5 and finished with Watco Danish Oil medium Walnut.
