Very nice carving work. I admire your carving talent, skill and your patience doing detailled and intricate work.
And making carved panel door is great idea too.

Take care and work safe

That is amazing. Carving is a talent I do not possess. Clearly you do.

An exceptional relief carving, & a great job of undercutting with the leaves. They look almost real.

May I ask, what kind of wood is it?

Very nice. Thank you for posting the “in progress” photos. It helps me see how this type of carving is done.

my computer is running a little slow right now but that third picture was definitely worth waiting for!

Magnificent workmanship. I really appreciate the picture series as well!

Very nice carving! The realism is great. Looks like you carved it in Mahogany?

Thanks every one for koments and nice words. The “grapes” was carved from magohany (Gonduras magohany). It’s enough soft and resilient wood for carving. For finish I put on bee wax, which was melted in turpentine. So , temporary my workshop smel like in museum :):):) ... good preservation.

Your carving is really super! Thanks for sharing the progress shots. What kind of furniture was the door panel used on?
