Another chip carving project I made in my vacation. Last week I glued the pieces together and treated it with a lacquer spray. Gluing it together wasn’t that easy for me. The vase and butterfly model I used was out of a book. The wood is basswood (Tilia)

Thanks for watching.

That is very beautiful!
Love the chip carving the way you laid it out on the tray bottom and nicely bordered with the design on the sides .
Your carving skills are very precise you certainly have a talent for this .

That is, like all above said, beautiful.
I assume that you carved it after assembly, is that correct?
If that’s the case, are you not worried about a carving mistake?
