Here's What's New at Wooden Toy and Gift, May 2014

April showers bring May flowers, and the birds come too, of course. Rick has been anticipating this season, and working his scroll saw to produce pretty plaques that celebrate the Spring season.  Here are a few of his new pieces, which will be available in the shop and online at his web store,  They will also be on display with more of his art in Lark Rising Gallery of Bearskin Neck Motor Lodge, Rockport, Massachusetts. This is his first art gallery showing, and it opens on June 1st. We're very excited to have this opportunity to show his work among other artists' pieces in this gallery. Visit the link for Lark Rising Gallery to see more!

Plaque of four scroll-sawn flowers. One eighth inch Baltic
Birch plywood, backed with 100% cotton. Hang in the window
for a stained-glass look.

The same flowers as shown in the plaque of four, but cut separately
for smaller pieces that give the same stained-glass look.

This delicate rose plaque measures 7 1/2" x 9 1/2 inches.
The rose itself and does have thorns.
It is cut of half-inch pine plywood and is centered on
one-quarter inch plywood covered in 100% cotton.

This large 10" x 13" Cardinal Plaque is cut from one quarter inch  Baltic Birch
plywood and backed with 100% cotton.

These individual bird plaques each measure 5 1/2" x 5 1/2".
They are cut from one quarter inch Baltic Birch Plywood.
 These are also backed with 100% cotton and, when hung in a window,
have the same stained-glass effect as the flower plaques do.
Additional plaques of Chicadee and Blue Jay are also available.
