Many years ago my woodworking class had a Christmas show and I built these Maple and Walnut tables. I did not get a picture of the tops, but they are Maple. I did 16 different carvings on the legs. Each of a different bird. They were auctioned off to raise money for the program. Then split apart to two different buyers. I’d pretty much forgot about them till USCJeff wrote about using different woods.

That is some excellent carving!
It wouldn’t hurt my feelings if you would show us some more of this style of relief art. Well done.

Great carvings Dennis. Why did you give it up, just don’t have the time? Those look pretty cool, I like how they are arranged on the table edge. Good job pal. mike

Very nice shallow relief Dennis.

They must have sold for a pretty good price.
