    Have you ever thought about pre-staining 1/4 bass and gluing 8 layers deep, each layer a different color,

    then working down to a particular color? I've never carved into stained wood, but at 1/4 it might stain all through?
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible

    Most times that thin it will cup bad so no I find it easier to keep it solid an just take my time with it, most of the time is doing the back cuts
