That is very nice work, indeed. It’s hard to believe that is your first carving project.

Nice work. I like that you used angled lighting to accentuate the carving. We would like to see the rest of the table too.

The skull exrays are a bit unnerving above the one photo, but the carvings are excellent. Masterful even.

I like the carving and the lighting in the photos. It really makes it look haunting. I happened to look at your previous projects and noticed that you posted this 143 days ago as an in progress project but labeled it “Hall Table”. That’s the only way I could tell it was a hall table though. At first I thought it might be a headboard or something. lol

Beautiful, must have been hard to keep it symetrical.
