  • Bass Relief

    Here is my latest carving in BASSwood of a BASS fish
    Al thinks this is funny
    I had this piece of wood laying around for a long time and started to make a bowl out of it, then changed my mind and carved a fish instead. All the detail is woodburned and all the carving is done by hand, (no power carving for me) I'm guessing the size at 6'x10'x2'. Already sent it out and forgot to measure it LOL
    I haven't been getting much carving done lately, but I'm starting to feel inspired again.

    I hope this works....

    That is a great looking carving. What is the depth of the relief? The finish also looks great.

      This is just too good; not only is it a bass fish in basswood, but its also bass relief!

      Most of all I'm envious; great work, Donna!

          Thanks everyone
          Dale, I'm not sure about the depth of the relief part. The whole thing was 2' thick, and I started to make a bowl, so I cleared out about 1/2' thickness of the center before I started to carve the fish. There is probly a good 1/4' of wood left behind the fish.
          Al, you are so easily amused! hehehehe

                  Donna,

                  Great job on the fish and with the surrounding background, very realistic, very good 'pyro' talent too.

                      Donna,

                      I love it! Boy, that would look nice on the wall beside my pool table.

                      Good Work.

                        Donna,
                        excellent job I just love it what a talent now to me that is woodcarving. I would love to be able to do that and you did it without power I am so impressed. You are a true artist it looks as if you had gone out and caught it and had it mounted on the wood. Love seeing your work.

                            And the recipe is..........
                            hehe just kidding, I lost the recipe
                            I did find a handy tool on ebay tho, it is a scraper for stripping furnature and paint. I used it in a lot of places instead of sanding and now I'm using it to take some varnish and stain off an old walking staff that I picked up at a flea market about 10 yrs ago. Someone had blasted it with white spray paint over a dark glossy finish. It is a nice stick, some kind of hardwood (maybe hickory) twisty. The scraper comes with several (6-8) blades of different shapes. It goes much faster than the tools I was using, knife, gouge, microplane rasp...
                            Thanks everyone for the nice compliments!

                                New toys sometimes become tools we can use, and other times they simply are tools toward expanding our horizons and being there when an idea pops into our heads. Let us know what you try the Ortur on and how it does. I'm sincerely curious. Also....why did you choose Amazon vs the other vendors...

                                It was a challenge that’s for sure. I didn’t start anything until I was all finished. It’s nice to have a clean area to work in! My biggest challenge was all those pieces of scrap wood that I just might need “someday.” They burned well in my son’s woodstove. And I did get through all the patterns....

                                Wow - Betty, what do you charge. I have things to do and I'm in the process of cleaning my shop, just to have room to do it. My problem is that I get the work bench cleared and then start working on projects again. I really need to do the workbench last.

                                I ordered and received the ORTUR Laser Master 2 from Amazon, the but haven't had a chance to even get it out of the box. Too much going
                                on right now. I got the 20 watt version, which is supposed to be good for cutting, but I don't think I'll be doing much of that. There will be a learning curve...
