    Wolf Box Swap Project

    I finished it up today

    Here it is.

    By the way - I intentionally made the light and dark areas to hi-lite certain areas.

    Nice.

    The little till in it is a nice touch as well. Just IMHO the carving came out really nice, when I think how long that would take me to do by hand.. a CNC for roughing at least looks vaguely attractive

    Ryan, for me it is not so much in terms of how long, but in terms of yes or no.

    It simply would never happen for me without the CNC.

    I have no intentions to ever pass anything off as hand carved.

    Even so, this is a different skill set in it's own right, and there is no need to try to be something it's not.

    I don't try to compare to hand carved - this is just a different process.

    Absolutely! I was just thinking there was some opportunities for synergy if one were so inclined, and pondering the effort required to do something similar in a more traditional way.

    Absolutely!

    I know of some that take the CNC relief carvings to the next level and do all the undercutting and adding detail.

    I did a relief carving of the last supper and tried my hand at some of that. The carving was from before I fixed my machine, was REALLY hard wood and my desire to get it done was just not there. Now that my machine is in better shape - and even moreso with the new machine, I have more desire.

    As a matter of fact Dan Sawatsky is a proponent of that, but at a different level. His is more sculpture than carving.

    On another forum I frequent there is a guy that does fabulous carvings from scratch (no CNC) and he uses rotary tools - dremel to do his work. That is what I tried. Still another skill in itself. If I were to go to the next level - that is where I would go. I actually do use the dremel to do some cleanup and detail now. Still, I don't call it hand carved.
