Progress on Fireplace Mantel Carving

I’m making progress on the fireplace mantel carving. I’ve finished all the bows as well as all the flower drops and flower swags. I’ve started on the end medallions but must first touch base with the client about some of the finer details regarding them. In the meantime, I’ve started the large flower leg drops.

I can see some light at the end of this project. All that’s left to complete is these two leg drops and the two medallions. Then I can begin on the next project, which is a mahogany version of this carving, but with the addition of a fruit bowl. That should be an interesting challenge.

Local weather in Langley, BC is rainy today. That’s ok as I need to stay inside and carve! The garden is growing like a wild thing. We’ve fought off the slugs and have been eating lettuce and radishes for some time now. The strawberries are finished. Next to harvest will be peas and carrots, maybe a few beets.

Back to stabbing wood with pointy, sharp things!
