I’m a chip carver and enjoy making things out of wood then decorating them with chip carving. This is a wall hanging that is 24” sq. and has 4 triangles hinged on it. When this is opened it becomes a 36” diamond. The dark wood framing is walnut and the light colored wood is basswood. I made this for the competition at the largest woodcarving show in the country, ’’Dayton Artistery in Wood” I can get closer pictures if anyone would like. Thanks for looking!
