This is my latest woodcarving project made out of basswood. I have it hanging in my office at work as an inspiration during the day! The palm trees were carved separately out of basswood and glued to the base carving to add dimensionality to the carving.

I love it! Going to have to carve myself one for work. Nice job.

I glued the palm trees on before painting the carving but in retrospect it may have been easier to paint them before gluing them to the painted backgroud-thanks for the comment and feel free to use the design!

That’s a nice carving and I’m sure it’s very inspirational. Unfortunately, mine might have to say “Another day in the dungeon.” ;)

Dave:

So….....where is paradise? Florida, S. California, Texas?

But then, if you have a happy family and friends, you have paradise – even if there is snow & sleet outside.

Paradise is in Florida or in your heart wherever you’re at!
