Dan, this is another wonderful piece. As a woodworker who is nearly devoid of any artistic talent I greatly appreciate seeing this gifted ability expressed by artists such as yourself. I like the design on the frame as well. It creates a lot of visual interest.

Nice job.

I love your work but can I ask why you use an expensive wood like Mahogany to do the relief cuts? Is it better than some other types of wood?

Thanks guys for the nice comments Buddies !

Hey Woody … Mahogany carves like a dream. It is soft with fine grain, takes incredible detail. As far as cost. at one time I had close to 1000 bft of 8/4 Honduran mahogany. Bought it real cheap from a Salvage company in Memphis about 10 years ago. Came from a insurance salvage from a fire at a hardwood lumberyard. The bundle had smoke damage on the outside and nothing else wrong with it. I still have a few hundred pounds of mahogany left from that glory hole.

Honduran Mahogany is also the wood that foundry pattern makers use to make iron molds and such. Really fine grain from really huge trees. The pallet of lumber had Product of Peru written in white under the soot. Each board had white paint on the ends and stamp with a Rainforest logo.
