Third place in the Richmond carvers show for this maple panel.

Maple, aged mahogany.
We just finished this basswood lily for a client. Simple, subtle, and full of life. A glorious amber shine envelops it. A perfect gift for a soulmate.
I rushed to finish this latest piece for a gallery deadline
A new piece - a paisley sculpture carved in relief out of maple and mahogany.
The mahogany pedestal features rosettes and small chip-carved patterns incorporating incisions. The paisley piece rests in a bed of felt.
Here is a small sampling of the detail work on the pedestal.
And a small video of the carving process.
A small study in paisleys - I’ve been developing a uniquely Persian / Indian form of scroll work incorporating elements from Indian embroidery.
On exhibit at the Bay Area Woodworking Association this month.
And here’s a build video:
This project is a pair of wooden earrings. Carved from a single block of mahogany and dealt with from start to finish with hand-tools.
The brass was a stray piece of artist wire combined with some off-the-shelf clip-ons.
An unorthodox set of materials to craft a one-of-a-kind object.

Here is a small clip illustrating the whole build process.
