This is one of the windows in my shop.
I had made the row of small drawers about a year before finsihing the carving but did not have an idea of how I wanted to finsh off the window treatment.
One winter day my daughter was in the shop when I was hand planing a board. She took a photo of me while working with the plane. She then used the photo to draw the same on a sheet of paper. I decided to transfer her photo on a piece of birch and make a relief carving. Over the time as I was carving I was thinking about what to do with it once it was completed. What I came up with was to use it in the window treatment that I had started quite some time before. I used the carving over the window which led to the idea to make the side casings look like planes.
