this is #19 in my relief carving studies. This one took a while to do, lots of curves and crannies. It’s in Basswood, finished in gloss laquer, 5 coats with sanding after the first sealing.

-- I did measure it twice, it's still too short.

thanks for the encouraging comments. Landog, it’s self study, I just bought a few chisels as i went along and have learned by doing. The carving is in Basswood.

Outstanding work. Especially for being self taught. I would love to be able to carve like this. Perhaps you can do a blog and school allof us interested in carving on how to get started and make it work. Would love to see more of your carving work.

Who would ever have thought that such a fine carving was hiding in that
plain, ordinary looking board. Great job.

I wish I had your patience for this type of work. I can’t think of any project that wouldn’t be enhanced by some carving like this.
