Maybe your best effort yet! Your artistry is first rate and your choice to wrap twins and mother in a delicate bed of winding roses is precious. I absolutely love your work! You bring so much grace to the art of woodworking/carving. We are lucky to have your posts! Thanks s much again.

Absolutely beautiful. What size did you carve this piece? And what wood species did you use? The detail is spectacular. I envy your skill.

So nice….... I wish I had the skill and patience to carve something like this. I cheat and use a CNC to do work like this, but doing it by hand is so impressive. You do wonderful work..
