This is a rose (in maple) I just finished carving that will be used on a lid for a jewelry box that Keith will be making. His mom asked for a jewelry box that can be auctioned off for charity, for her womans group in an up-coming fundraising event, so this is the start of that. While this is NOT going to be the finished state of the carving….it’s the end of MY part of the project. Keith or I will post the completed box after it’s constructed, stained, and finished.
One cool aspect of this (to me) is that I used an actual beautiful photo of a rose that Keith took from our front yard as my pattern, instead of finding some random pic in a book or on the internet somewhere. As you can see…I posted the picture he took as pic #6. For me, that adds a little more of “us” into the project and just makes it a little more special.
Thanks for looking : )
