  • Deep relief carved “ Ship Door “

    Hi there.
    I thought I’d post a carved door that I had done for a client ( I actually ended up carving four doors for this client. Great couple! ) anyway they wanted a carved ship door for a guest bedroom that has a maritime theme. ( Which is a great idea. ) the only requirements was for it to have a sailing ship with the sails up and anchored at harbour.
    The carved area measures about 1m ( 39” ) high and 600mm ( 24” ) wide. The door is carved from red cedar. Completely done with power tools. router, Arbortec and Dremel.
    Thanks for looking.

    Regards Richard

                  Beautiful work, Richard! Your hands are a lot steadier than mine with the power tools!

                      Thank you so much for the reply’s!

                      Hi Joe Paul. The door is 50mm ( 2”) thick. The carve was about 30mm (1 1/4”) deep to the level of the sky. I always want to get as much depth as I can without sacrificing any structural integrity of the back ground wood.
                      Every bit of depth I can get sure does help to give the carving even more shadow and pop!
                      regards Richard

                            I keep coming back to look at that door, dam but that is fine carving for Red Cedar. I have carved Red Cedar before and it can be a real challenge, though I must admit I was using edged tools. I must give it a try using power tools. Thanks for sharing that with us.

                              Hi Denny & Bob. Thanks for that!
                              You know Bob I’m on the other end of that. I’ve never tried or used chisels to carve! I’ve only known power tools so that’s what I started with and just stuck with Them.
                              . If I had to start carving tomorrow with only chisels. I think it would be like starting from scratch for me. With all the concerns of grain direction and pressure and type of Chisel to use here & there, sharpening etc. It’s truly a art on to its own.

                              Yes I think I’ll be sticking with them power tools!
                              Regards Richard
