    Thanks Clearhooter = This was a long thread, but full of surprises. Some of the earlier project discussions lost their photos due to a hack of this site. We've been trying to restore the photos if we can. If you do a search on the name "Escher," they will come up.

    Actually, if you do that simple search you will get 500 results. If you go to Advanced Search and enter my username (pallin) under Members, and check the box for Started posts only, you'll get 45 results (since I'm one of the only members carving this stuff by Escher.)

    Thank you Randy. The entry deadline is May 28, so I may use that as an incentive to get my current project done!

    Today I applied a water-based sealer, so the project has moved from the carving phase to staining.

    Your skill and creativity is impressive pallin. I have no doubt it will do well at the show.

    As mentioned elsewhere in this forum, this carving has now been entered in a 2020 Virtual Woodcarving Show in Richmond, BC at the end of May.

    We carvers are never satisfied, so someday I may take it down to cut some flaw away. But for now, it's done.

    That chip carved plate is from a class at the Oakhurst Rendezvous 2009.

    That is a good book I've read it and while at Schlumberger and bunking with my boss, had it in my case and he spotted it. Asked and then showed his. We were almost in the same spot at the same time but living hundreds of miles away and never talking about books before. It does have a good section on how the brain works.

    Thanks Joe, it's a special compliment to be associated with such fine carving even if it's laser-cut. When we become amazed by the capabilities of computer controlled carving machines, it's good to look back at the work of Grinling Gibbons in the 17th Century:

    This turned out great. I had wandered away from the forums for a few months, but then my curiosity on how this piece turned out brought me back. Looks cool!

    This carving is nearly done so I tried placing it on the wall with other pieces. It seems to look best at eye level or above. I still plan to stain the outside edge of the frame and touch up a few errors.
