    Default Some projects

    I did all these by hand, not with the carvewright machine so if this is inappropriate to post hopefully they will be pulled.

    I made the wife some hand carved flower pictures:

    I used some automotive basecoat colors over reduced by about 600%, wiped on with a rag. Not sure I am all that thrilled with the coloring but the wife liked them.

    I decided that the other side of the kitchen cabinet needed something to go with the carrot "people" so I carved a couple of mushroom "people"

    Made from some 1" thick curly maple. They are about 5" tall.

    What do you think of them?

    Thanks ~Mike

    Every one has a photographic memory. Some just don't have film.

    These look awesome, They even seem to take away from the print. If you read the text with the photos, they pretty much tell the tale.

    Love seeing your work. Your wife is a very lucky woman to have such a talented partner. Note: When I first saw them I thought what great handles, on kitchen cabinets, they would make.
