This year at the Dayton Carving Show, which is this weekend, they are having a silent auction 50/50 and the piece has to be made from a nut wood. I chip carved a wall plaque for the auction made from butternut and walnut. I stained the butternut panel and chip carved thru it then bleached the cuts to make a nice contrasting color. The frame pieces I made from walnut which I bleached before assembly then chip carved thru that to get the contrasting color. The piece is approx. 12” x 16”.
