The cutting on this Nativity Scene was done with a procedure called antofret. Antofret is a method by which one board can be made to represent two or three, creating a “stand-out” raised relief of the design. This technique was developed in the early 1900’s by an Italian Priest, M. Antonini, and as a lasting reminder of his work this type of cutting was named after him.

When you move the pieces forward they lock open. When you go backwards the pieces come apart. The picture shows how the 3d effect is developed from the flat one that is like it is when it comes off the saw. Solid Poplar Construction
Stained Golden Oak Color. It measures 5”w x 4”h x 3/4” thick.

Thank you for looking!

Thats Cool. I guess the pieces are cut with a 1- 2 deg angle.

I have used this technique numerous times and never knew what it was called or how it originated. A member for only a few days and I have already learned something new. Thanks and Nice job!
