AMAZING GRACE CARVED IN WOOD
AMAZING GRACE, HOW SWEET THE SOUND...what a blessing that hymn is to all Christians. My wonderful hubby, who does extensive woodwork and Intarsia, obtained a pattern and created this beautiful wall plaque. Each line of the hymn is cut out with a scroll saw. A pilot hole is drilled so the saw blade will fit into the piece of wood for every opening you see. I cannot believe that he can do this tiny intricate work. He then mounted the staff bars onto a piece of wood and wood burned its border. He put a hanger on the back and I attached a lavender ribbon through it for hanging on my living room wall. I love it! He loves doing the woodwork and it is a great diversion from his illness. Thanks for looking and reading! For information on having one of these beautiful plaques made, e-mail us.
