This makes me want a glass of wine.
The Boxwood and Walnut make a great combo.

So much detail to take in. I could look at it for hours while I sit and marvel at your talent. :-) I love the frame too.

Amazing as always!

May I ask approximately how long it takes you to carve something like this? My latest carving took me close to 14 hours from start to finish, and it’s alot less detailed then your carvings, so I can only imagine how long it takes you to complete something like this! Or, maybe I’m just a slow carver, hehe! :)

If you are slow, I’m a snail! :)
I cannot say how long it takes me ,
because I never watch for this.
But this project took me approximately 3 months.
This does not include time to create the patterns and sealing.

Thank you all !
