Nice job, Nancy! Thanks for sharing. How did you carve the part very close to the wall of the box?

Thank you for your kind words, Kevin! For a sealer I used a satin transparent varnish, which I also applied after the staining.October 28, 2020 at 8:13 pm in reply to: Nancy Anderson, scalloped rim plate #100013799

Another rosette, on a butternut disc, stained directly, without a sealer, with a diluted water-based stain.September 21, 2020 at 3:48 pm in reply to: Chip carved gift – Andrei Gotia #100013547
This is a rosette which started with an incident: I inadvertently carved through the disc at the first ‘valley’ (thanks to the lapboard, no accident followed ;o)). My temptation was to throw the project away and start anew. But then I was inspired to use the incident by replicating it, hence the result. Lesson learned: do not be discouraged by mistakes, but try to fix them and often nobody could tell. ;o)) It is basswood, stained directly, without a sealer, with a diluted water-based stain.April 28, 2020 at 11:30 am in reply to: Family Plates #100012184
