Beautiful piece. The boxwood looks great against the shades of the walnut. It needs it’s own alcove.

Wonderful !! How do you accomplish the impeccable detail in such an intricate flowing design?
What type and size of tools are you using. I’d love to watch you work as you carve.
Great choice of subject for the season.
Celebrate Easter!

Thank you all !!

According to the Orthodox calendar Easter is next week.
I remember a few years ago the Catholic Easter, Orthodox Easter and Passover were on the exact same date.
That was just great! I don’t know about recording myself as I do not have the equipment for that, but I will think over it. As far as the tools I use, there is some information in my blog:
