After sketching a swallow motif with leafed branches on a piece of box shaped black construction paper I decided to go for it.  I scribed, cut, and sanded the metal after making templates of the design, then nailed it on with small brass escutcheon pins.  Metal nailed onto wood has a great look to my eye – it evokes Mexican tinwork and Southeastern US outsider art images.
