« Part 11: A peek at the finished tabletop! Part 12 of Thorsen Table Challenge series Part 13: Still carving away !! Getting close to the end. »

I decided not to hold my cards to close to my chest, as Scott mentioned.

I decided to show what I’ve been doing the last couple of days.

I couldn’t resist doing some chiseling on this table. That’s the reason I did a downward cloud lift on the aprons, in order to fit in a carving.

One down, three to go.

This is about 4 hours of chiseling. A little more touching up, & it’ll ready for the finish.

There are many documented instances where Charles Greene would add carvings to his work.

Dick – the carving is beautiful and fits extremely well with the Thorsen Table. This looks like a winner to me.

Very Nice Dick. I don’t see any Tenons on the end of your board. Have you just blocked out all of the rest of the picture. Or are you still milling pieces?

Very observant Karson, I blocked them out, for a prettier picture.

WOW! Nice rose carving Dick but I had an idea there was a carving going in that space when I saw how you opened it up with the downward cloud. Carving minds work alike to an extent. LOL!

Thank you Rog,
I couldn’t resist carving on that beautiful Black Walnut, my favorite carving wood.

You’re up bright, & early this morning. You must be chipping, & chirping away with the birds. LOL

Up at 4:45 even if I don’t set the alarm clock. I plan on finishing my table this weekend, I hope.
