This is my second attempt at carving this Norwegian Acanthus Leaf Design. This project was carved all by hand tools , out of walnut. It was finished in Linseed Oil. Total time was approx. 50 hrs.

Attempt? Attempt you say!! No way Jose, you succeeded with flying colors!!!!! This is very difficult to do, I know, I tried one a few years ago and failed miserably and it was not even as complicated as this one!

This is so beautiful…fantastic job! I carve only with hand tools as well, so I can really appreciate the time and effort that goes into a piece like this one! :)

This is really something! I really like the hand tooled look. With todays CNC machines that look is rare. You have a gift!
