It's been so long since my original carving post I can't find it! Here's some progress pics of my latest project. Router/chisel carve of a stylized PNG Yipwon hook spirit. Props to Monkeyman for inspiring me to try my hand at relief carving.
Reworking some of the wood grain effect. Had to sister up another board to guide my router depth.
Finished carve awaiting burnishing, stain, and maybe even some paint. Personally I think the heart came out looking more like a Serrano chile on life support, but my daughter gave me thumbs up and over all I'm pleased with my first effort at a router carve.
