16,533 and 10,984

What does this mean?

Well  after 5 months ( 4 months of carving ) I wrapped up the final foot of mouldings last night.

For the 3/4 inch moulding which was 684 ft. long I carved an average of 16 leaves per foot. So that means for this particular moulding I carved 10,984 leaves each being approx. 3/4 inch wide.
And for the second piece of moulding which was smaller and required 501 ft. I carved 33 leaves per foot. So that means 16,533 leaves were carved.

All total 27,517 leaves were done on nearly 1/4 mile of mouldings. Just to have trim around some custom made doors.

Phew!

If you scroll down the page you can see the pieces I’m talking about.  As much as I love carving I really don’t care to see more of these any time soon. But if the opportunity comes up,, I’m game.
