Paisley Sculpture 1

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.

On exhibit at the Bay Area Woodworking Association this month.

And here’s a build video:
