Here is a hand carved orchid display. Flowers, buds, and vine are carved from basswood and maple. Arranged on driftwood. Suspended on a simple welded steel stand.

Over 50 individually carved pieces… I make tiny little pins to fasten / glue parts together… I use typical wood glue and also epoxy. This type of work really exercises patience, but a very enjoyable process for me.

Thanks for looking!

Another lovely carving. The way you have displayed the orchid on the driftwood really puts the finishing touch on it!

Absolutely out of any league – it’s upper league. Very beautiful, deatiled and realistic. You have very strong nerves, but this work is ’’ZERO’’ stress.
