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.
