FOR A CUSTOM WOOD CARVING DESIGN OF YOUR PET email Angelo at email@example.com
A project for a client whose beloved dog passed away many years ago. I created a box and used the carving as the top. This particular carving was recessed into a convex profile as sort of a “pillowing” effect, softening the top. The top was made from Sapele wood, the casing was made from Birdseye Maple. You will notice in the last photo that I used the “wrap around” technique with the grain–it was cut from one piece of Birdseye Maple allowing the grain to flow naturally around the case. The dog was hand painted and slight recessed base using Sapele and Ebony feet finished off the project. Click on images for a larger view.
