Daffodil Spandrel

This is a hallway entry element in a commission to create a “Victorian” interior in an existing home. It is made from poplar, alder and cherry. The spandrel is carved on both sides The overall width is 40". The spandrel is 24" high, and the crown is 10 1/2" high. The clients current plan is to stain and then paint the flowers and key elements.

Beautiful! Can’t wait to see it finished and installed! (but then I’m slightly biased – I’ve been watching over his shoulder the entire process!).

Beautiful is right indeed.
There are so many details. The leaves veins match from one leaf to the next.

Do you use some power tools in your carvings?

I have never carved but I am looking to buy the dremel fortiflex to start shaping stuff. Any thoughts on the dremel?

Wow. You don’t have to answer but I’m very curious as to how much you charge for something like this. That must have taken a great amount of time.

Thanks everyone for the comments :-) The value of something like this is always a lot more then you charge the first time thru…..about $1500. The carving work was done with hand gouges only on both sides.
