Below are some pictures of the carved bottom rail of frame for an oil painting. The carving, in process, features two ring necked pheasants, as well as the subject’s name, and a few other decorative elements yet to be executed.

I have begun the carving on the main front panel of a cherry and walnut hope chest. This carving is in cherry and features a shallow relief of a stylised tree.
