This was my first big relief carved linen with chip carving on it. This was a challenge for me as to where to start. This type of glue up was different for me because you had to see the areas where the depth was and wasn’t. After the carving show season was over believe it or not it just sat behind my studio room door and collected dust. I finally took it to a local Woodcraft store and they were happy to hang it on the wall for display.
I think most of us Lumberjocks are in the same boat in that we would like our woodworking projects to inspire someone else to at least attempt a project like ours. Our talents are God given and if we don’t share them with someone else then we will be cheating the world of inspiration. After all this linen was inspired by Mels Yegniazaryan a carver who wasn’t afraid to share.

Roger, Awesome.
I like this one much better than the shroud, because I love the beauty of the natural wood grain.
Question: Did you use a chisel for the letters ?

Dick, I chip carved all of the letters with a knife which took just about 1 minute per letter. I can tell you this much and that is that there is a bunch letters!

It is amazing and a real piece of art – The lettering is something else. (Hope you did not mis-spell anything – kind of hard to use an eraser!)

Larry, I would hate to guess how many times I check it for spelling. I even had my wife check it, she’s a 4 grade teacher. LOL!

Nice work! I once carved a 5’X8’ sign and misspelled woodworking. It said woodworing before I fixed it.

Wow is right. I’m now going to the page to see how you did this. Do you sell your work, just wondering?

Roger, I just don’t know what to say. Your work is beautiful.

“I chip carved all of the letters with a knife”

You WHAT

Good Lord (if you’ll excuse the redundancy) that’s amazing.

Do you have a bigger picture kicking around someplace?

Have your say...
