Wooden scroll


I am a woodcarver and most of what I do is called chip carving. Chip carving is decorating with designs using a knife. This is the wooden scroll I just finished. It is made of 8/4 basswood with the corners having 6/4 added to allow for the carved scrolled corners to be carved. All the lettering and designs are carved with a kinfe. The piece is approximately 28″ × 36″.
