“Hey, aren’t you done with that thing yet?” You know I can’t make something without a carving decoration. So…
Here’s the harder one first. Carving straight lines along the grain line is harder than carving curves. While I’m never satisfied with a carving, this one is done enough to set aside and wait for its partner.
It’s all Shannon’s fault. During his review of a Bontz saw, he mentioned an Art Deco feature in how the saw’s back was shaped. That sparked an old interest and I was off to re-explore the genre and come up with a couple of designs.
The curvy one is next. And yes, I’ll cut a saw plate some day.
