A last minute birthday present for my mom. I saw an awesome cat butt mandala picture posted somewhere and thought, “I need that for my mom’s birthday!” Unfortunately for me, when I found the original source, it was an artist selling the actual completed mandala, not a purchasable file. And I had a day to do something, so little chance I could design, cut, and build.
So yesterday I found a non-butt cat mandala that I knew my mom would still like on Etsy and purchased it. Cut it early afternoon and stained it. Glued up on the evening and left it clamped overnight, then wrapped it this morning to gift today.
Unstained and stacked to preview on the first, stained and glued second. made with 10 layers of 5/32 columbia forest birch from home depot. 14.825" tall by 6.5" wide (just small enough to fit 2 up on a 12x20 board).
