Just before the Covid-19 “Stay at Home” order I started on a tile mosaic for the furniture factory where I am employed. The parameters are to use samples of wood finishes they currently offer to make a mosaic of a wolf. Today I was able to get busy laying out some of the tiles I have as a test for plans for the construction. I’d probably be done if there hadn’t been a pandemic. Oh well, I’m not the only one who’s plans got knocked off a month. I’m just thankful for the project. And there’s still the whole summer ahead to work on it yet. Doing what I enjoy to do!

Here is a sample of what I can use my new laser engraver for instead of just cutting cards. Not sure if I like this…maybe a different color stain will be better.


This is a layout of the left outer edge. I had to lay them out to double check my measurements before I get too far along.

Test Layout


This is my layout graph. Minus the sample labels, this is what it’s supposed to look like when finished.

Update: May 29, 2020 Here are some freshly stained samples. I almost have everything needed to start assembling the project.
