This was created as part of a wedding gift to two of our best friends who were married last week.
The lithopane started life as a cutting board. I put it through my planer to thin it down (what a MESS) and then used my CNC Machine to create the carving you see in the pictures.
It looks like garbage until you hold it up to a light source and then WOW! The 3D effect and detail is really stunning!
I also created a simple frame made from walnut to give it that proper finish.
They have yet to open their gifts as they are still on their honeymoon – I expect a comment or two either today or tomorrow though. ;-)
The Litho measures around 5×7 with a one inch diameter frame.
NOTE: If you want to see a video of another Lithopane I just completed, go to this link. It contains no wood, so I’m not posting it as a project – rules are rules. :-)
