I carved this softwood tree in a piece of Cherry. There is quite a bit of burl to this piece and some spalted wood. The whites and blues of the spalted wood really add character.
This carving measures 18” tall, 7” wide and 1 1/4” thick.
This style of carving is called pierced relief. I began with a drill and jigsaw…. I cut out all of the negative spaces and then spent lots of time shaping the tree using burs in my Foredom. I finished this piece with Howard Feed n’ Wax and 1 coat of spray urethane.
