This Basswood Rose was much easier carving than the Oxboard. The pattern for this was an advertisement for a porcelain Knick-knack in a magazine

this is beautiful. I really like the lines that you put in the background: they really add to the art which no longer is “just a rose”. Does that make sense to anyone else but me?? lol

You definitely have control of your carving tools.

I picked this one as my favorite out of all the roses you posted today. I like the way it “fills the page”....of course now I can’t let my wife look at lumberjocks anymore..with valentines day just around the corner…I have way too much stuff to do to be carving roses…maybe…then again I’m short on time…

Dennis.
That’s all you’ll need is 6 to 8 hours of your spare time, & you got it made man.

I’m with Dennis, this is my favorite. Oh, I can do this in 8 hours? Cool, I’ll get right on it… in your dreams. I’d do well to whittle a stick in 8 hours. Carving is something that really intrigues me. The way they can take a log and make something beautiful out of it. I’m in awe.

Dick this is stunning. To me it looks like one of these “butter patties” you get in fancy restaurants. The butter is pressed into a mold and refrigerated. The colour of the wood lend to this, but mostly, it is the skill of the artist who carves with such sweet flowing lines. Congratulations on a superb piece.
