This is one of my more recent projects. My wife wanted me to design something to place above the door. This is the design I came up with.

That seems pretty good. There would be a lot of time put into carving like that. Darn sure that I would not have the patience to do something like that. Very good.

I can tell you have been doing this for quite some time. The design is great and your execution is spot on.

Keep chipping away brother! Very nice, I like the rosette on the right the best. Is that pine your chipping in?

I think I am going to like this group! Thanks everyone for your kind comments. The wood, by the way, is stained basswood. The rosette in the middle was my own design. The other two, I believe came from Wayne Barton.
