The original of this relief carving was a woodcut done by M. C. Escher in 1920 while a student in a school of decorative arts. This was long before the weird designs of his later life. This piece has a basswood cutout glued to black walnut,12” square. It was carved over four months using only hand tools.

-- Phil Allin - There are woodworkers and people who collect woodworking tools. The woodworkers have a chair to sit on that they made.

Really amazing. My initial thought this was a CNC project and was not going to comment. I’m not a fan of CNC or that sort of projects. Once I read thru it. You have total respect and appreciation for your art. Truly a wonderful piece.

Several of my relief carvings used multiple woods rather than stains:
