For a less experienced whittler/carver this design may be just what "the doctor ordered". It can be scroll sawed out of 1/4" thick Basswood, and easily shaped with a knife. And, for those of us that have a very short attention span, it can be completed is a very short period of time.
The same design can be enlarged and carved into a quite attractive wall hanging. This larger example was achieved by using rotary tools with a one inch diameter sanding drum.
Below is the finished 24 inch wall hanging.
