A look at it back lit. Spent an hour assessing how I was going to cut the perimeter and then I set about doing it.

I don’t have the sanding done yet on this step but you get the idea.

I decided to cut the leaf from the plywood stock and sand down the edges. Now, what to do with the scrap leaf? 🙂 I have to purchase some 1/8 inch luan and make a backer for the leaf..or not. Still have not committed myself yet as to which way to go. Maybe a green backer board? Or a red backer board?

I decided to go with the natural look and gave it 2 coats of clear polyurethane. Hung it up using a key whole bracket and a drywall screw.
