        I like that. I see a live-edge slab, which wood species is that?

              Nice work, Denny. Very shallow bas relief is hard to do well.

                that board is a storebought basswood , dried and planed , bark on. an inch board with a 1/16 carve, hmmm, i have a sheet of 1/8 " yellow heart, i should do a relief carve on that?
                thanks for the encouraging comments .

                  An eighth inch sheet could have serious warping issues unless you mount it in a thicker backing. Sixteenth inch carving depth is pretty constraining; if you do want to do that I'd be very particular in choosing a subject that doesn't require ANY illusion of depth...1'8" doesn't give you anything much to work with beyond outlines.

                    usually i plunge 3/4 inch , up to nearly 2 inch. this on was way out of my normal style.
