    Carved Panel

    Here's a carved panel I did for a client to go on the hood over their stove. They gave me a picture of a carving and asked me to carve this based on their picture. The aspect ratio was different so my carving differs from the picture but if anyone looked at both, they'd see they were generally the same. The panel is about 38" by 24" and the wood is basswood.

    I deliver it tomorrow.

    They will have it antiqued by a professional finisher. I'll try to get them to send me pictures when it's all finished, but sometimes you just have to be satisfied with the money.

    I don't know Mike, If that's all the better you can do,,,I'd give it up.

    Seriously, that is a beautiful job there. I'd love to see the finished product too. I bet it will make them happy.

    Tony, you slay me.

    Great-looking work, Mike. With so much of they type of panel carving being done with CNC machines, it's great to see someone who know how to do it old school.

    I know Vaughn, but I just had to get a jab in there for Mike. He sure does some fine work. I agree that a lot of that is done CNC now and it's nice to see hand work still being done, especially that good.

    Very nice indeed! How many hours do you figure you put into a piece like that? I see you working on it in your avatar there.

    Very fine. What kind of stove will it be over? Hope it doesn't get all covered with greasy smoke.

    Here's a picture of the panel installed but not finished. I'll try to get a picture after they have it finished but that's not always possible.

    I don't know the hours because I just don't keep track. But I enjoy carving and I'm retired, so the hours don't mean much to me.

    My avatar is old - I was working on some dovetails in that picture.

    Mike that is great. You might want to make some more of them. I would finish them with a Copper leaf [gild] and then a green verti glaze, It would make your carving look amazing. It amazing anyway.
