I thought I would not be uploading anything on my blog anymore but bigger projects like this one deserve a special post. I would post regular work in progress photos on my Instagram but it will be nice to have them all together right here. This is a large relief carving done in butternut wood, the charms are finished with oil paints. It took me around 90 hours to finish. The carving board itself is 20x8 inches, the frame adds around 1 inch on each side. I was originally doing this for myself but somebody was seriously interested in the piece. Have a look at the work in progress by reading ..read more

I've been avoiding religious carvings but was requested to carve a large wooden cross done in any style I would find suitable. I came up with this piece, it is 17.5 inches tall and 11.5 inches wide. It is fully hand carved in Catalpa wood but I cut out the base shape with a scroll saw. Funnily once the cross was finished the customer decided not to get it :)I am going to post it on Etsy because somebody else will surely appreciate the work: The cross is finished with Danish oil, it shows a very beautiful grain ..read more
