Here is a photograph of a winter blue sky. It is stamped with a leafless tree. This carving became rather unique as my thought was to trace the branches and bring together contrasting woods. The project was made from mahogany and birdseye maple veneer front and back. A convex shape was used at the face of the project (see top view photo). Inlay was completed in mahogany and a recess was created along the sides for a shadowing effect. A glossy finish with ultraviolet inhibitors completed the project.
