In September of 2012 I was commissioned to carve on antique mahogany doors from big old house in Pennsylvania. House about 10000 sq. f. Age of those doors 100 years. from 1911. Doors were not solid mahogany they had only 1/8” panels on top of pine raised panel. So my WOODCARVING has to by only 1/8” think. Professional woodcarvers call that type of carving low relief woodcarving

You are a very patient man! It is so difficult to achieve what you have accomplished. I’ve done relief carving and frankly I wasn’t good at it. The work requires meticulous attention to detail with no fatigue allowed.
Beautiful work! Thank you for sharing…......

I have got a very old traditional door and bought it from do you think the idea of restoration you have will preserve much of its vintage look?

Have your say...
