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

    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.

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

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