This is a completed commissioned carving. I was provided with the drawing and enlarged it to 36×24 (Rapid Resizer, very slick tool).
Carved in basswood with a walnut frame that floats allowing the center panel to expand and contract with the seasons.
Thanks for looking. Your comments and critiques are welcome.

Cool Marty. I just bought that Rapid Resizer program too, but I haven’t installed it yet. I did try it out for free on the website and it really works great. Unfortunately they don’t have it for MAC so I have to install it on my wife’s computer.

Marty, ive got to ask what tools do you work with. I did a really easy name plaque with carved letters and i might enjoy doing more. Youre work is great.

All of the carving is done with one knife!

I’m glad you’ve found some success carving letters on a plaque. You’re on your way to great chip carving!

Thanks Marty. I hope so, it seems like it could be a nice change of pace where i could sit down listen to some music quietly and carve.
