I carved this relief into a board that I rescued from an old pallet. It looks like cherry, but I am not sure. I coated the bare wood with paraffin and polished to a gloss and painted the angel with acrylics and followed it up with a coat of paraffin as well. I am finding that I really like the look of painted reliefs with a natural wood background.

Great use of a pallet Doug! Nice contrasting colors. On some cherry wood you can get a faint smell when you carve! Nice project!
