The finish was what the client wanted & she was very happy with it. 'The Client is Always Right.' The wood I used was basswood. I chose it for it's ease of carving and the fact it has very little contrast between early wood & late wood. It sands readily to a very smooth surface & is often used as a base for gold leaf.

The only wood used for the bulk of the carving was solid basswood and white birch for extra strength in the legs and some framing. The drawer boxes were baltic birch plywood
The maximum depth of carving, from high points to low points, was 2"

Ed, Most of the work I do is 'one-off', & usually requires new learning. That is why you can't expect any kind of classes in the work that I do. If there are specific questions about some detail in any of my projects, I will try to answer them. BUT, I 'hunt & peck' on my keyboard, so don't expect any long, involved descriptions. I am old school and I know what a CNC is & a little about what it can do, but I don't have a clue about how to make it work. If you take a look at the list of tools in my shop, in my introduction, you will see nothing out of the ordinary there, other then the fact that some of my machines are older then I am. However, sometimes I am able to get some of those machines to stand up on their back legs & perform tricks that would amaze you. And, I still have all the fingers I was born with.

I have been asked to provide some plans or explain how to do some details of certain projects. I will try, but in order to show plans I have to draft them out by hand & then photograph them, and load them into my computer before I can post them. Oh, I also have some shop projects on the go at the same time. Paul
