Jacob has been designing fanta-sy-themed pieces for sale at science fiction conventions for several years. While he has had sev era! very successful pieces (and sales), we are clways looking for new ideas. This fairy was shown in the art show at the Boston World Science Fiction Convention last fall, and I have sold several versions of it since then.
The finished fairy was cut on an Excalibur EX-30 saw from an interesting piece of quilted maple with a marble-like quality. The base is made from box elder that is similar in color to the maple, but any attractive wood such as cherry, oak, or elm would also make o great fairy and base.
