This is a great carving that must have taken lots of patience. Looking at the second picture, I’m sure I would break something long before I finished carving the flower. Welcome to Lumberjocks. I’m looking forward to more of your carvings.

Welcome to LJ. What a realistic art from wood! Suggest to have it in a base rather than in a hanged frame. It will also be nice if sealed with a glass box. This is one special job that will give you a name in carving. Thanks for posting.

Thank you. It is still relatively simple lily. Now work on the new lilies from linden wood, which is in the vase. It is much more fragile and more detailov.Zatiaľ is only on my site in the unfinished section (nedokončené).Linden wood afford to go further, as poplar. Poplar is sparse and brittle wood.

Super Nice carving! It reminds me of Grinling Gibbins Style of carving. Welcome To Lumberjocks!

Thank you. Grinling Gibbons was a great carver. Inspiration for my Slovak fairy tale. This is my second order in the lily. Then inspiration Gibbons and I started to work on new lilies, on which much work.

Outstanding. I just finished my first flower carving late last night and I know how delicate they are and how much work is involved. Great job.

Thank you. I looked at your rose. It is beautiful. I also look at carving using against the light. I also use a little something like tweezers to final thickness. Lily of the project lasted only 70 hours. The last flower is much more subtle. So the thickness below 1 mm (below 0.0394 in) diameter flower is 11 cm (4.330 in). Work on the flower itself lasted 140 hours and is one piece of lime. Whole lily (3 flowers) will be approximately 600 hours – an estimate. Now I am working on the stem with leaves.
