Door Frame Decoration

The client had obviously found a picture on the internet of what they wanted, but it was too small to see the design clearly.   We spent some time working out a practical, economical design.      The carving was easy.   I was amazed to find that I had used 3 chisels – 2, 0.5, and 0.25 inches, 3 gouges – 0.5, 0.25, 0.125 inches, and a scalpel.     The pictures show the Before (the internet picture), the After ( the door and frame, and an actual carving.
