I’ve been under the gun to get these carvings done so I don’t have any “in the process” pictures. My concern was to just get them done as quickly as possible. Hopefully you’ll still enjoy looking at the finished pieces.
This is a sketch I did for approval. The one on top is the one the designer sent which I just couldn’t use for obvious reasons!
Here you can see one is just band sawed out and the other is carved already.

Photos of the completed pair of carvings. These were done in Basswood as they will be painted and given an antique glaze finish which will highlight the carvings nicely. These were done in 1 inch stock.
