        I absolutely love the Castle. Is it layered or did it start as one thickness that you carved for the different elevations?

          Rolf, unfortunately, I do not have the project here so I cannot show you the side elevation. It is layered and protrudes about 4 inches from the background.

              Thanks for your response, Quartz 43. An added note: With this project, I wrote and printed a story called "A Horse with No Name". At the end of the story, the little girl decides to call her "Daisy". The story and the woodworking were presented together.

                Wow, those are amazing!

                From the photos one could easily think those were resin cast. Would you say it takes longer to carve the pieces versus the scroll work?

                The castle depth is impressive.

                  Thanks for the kind remarks, Karl. To answer your question--It depends on the project. Actually the details are created by the scrolling and the carving enhances what is already there. Sometimes there is a large amount of scrolling done first and sometimes there is more carving. A good example is the photo of the great horned owl that I am presently using for an avatar. It has a large amount of fretwork and much less carving. The decisions are made on a case by case basis.

                    I'm in the same boat. I get most of my sales surrounding demonstrations I do at the fairs. They've been cancelled. I do have a couple of orders from repeat customers, but that's all. Kind of a let down emotionally. My new toy money is on hold. Boooooo....

                    I like that PDF. This is something that Denny brought up on the phone last Friday as well. I told Denny that afternoon that the set screws would be something that I would not have thought of. We also talked about tightening the blade to much. I seem to have the tendency to over tighten the bottom clamp....

                    by jim_mex
                    Hi guys - today I obtained a little more info of the obsidian crafter I am soon to meet. His name his Juan Castelan Mata. In 1987 he was selected by a local comissionary (foundation) to learn the craft of modelling and sculpting obsidian. After learning the basics of working with this stone he set up...
