    goody,

    sounds kinda cheap for a hand carved corbel with that much detail in it. they are probably run on a roughout machine down to a fine cutter then hand sanded or something. thats my guess anyway.

      Harold I would bet my life that they are done on a duplicating machine especially when you can order more than one of the same thing. What they are insinuating is that someone carved them by hand using a duplicating machine.

        Unfortunatly they could also be carved in a third world country where a craftsman or craftswoman only receives a few dollars a month for their work.

        I worked for a Cross Stitch company for a very short period. Once a year they spent two weeks in Puerto Rico because they could have their samples stitched out at 10 cents a square inch where craftwomen in the States would have charged a $1 for that same stitching.

          I think the only hand that was involved was the one that turned on the duplicator!

            Maybe a little of both, eh? Seen some fantastic cpoied carving coming from the third world.
            Like Irish said, This may be a product of a third world. It is cheaper to send the wood over there and let them carve it. Look at Hobby Lobby,99% of their wood produvts come from over seas. Heck fire, you can even get a mail ordered wifr from the third world. Had a cousin who did, The 60 year old had him a 24 year old bride. She is happpy because she is out of the poor conditions and he is happy because now he has someone who waits on him hand and foot.
            Yep, Third world products. pc,radios,Tvs, cars, ya name it it comes from them. Wally World is the world's worse any more.
            I am done. CIAO.

              Hey Goody, good idea, I had one about 12 years back, a ryobi dc500, they are great for larger pieces, and removing a great deal very quickly. But nothing beats hand tools for detail. I when on yesterday and uploaded some of my different types of work. Check it out when you get time. What is the name of this club?

                I think it's aliens. Remember the mail sorting alien in Men In Black? He found out that hand carving corbels paid more than hand sorting mail!
