Woodcarving low relief mahogany antique doors

In September of 2012 I was commissioned to carve on Antique 1911 Mahogany Doors. My customers told me that doors are solid mahogany and they bought them thirty years ago from big estate house in Pennsylvania. Woodcarving for me not just a way to make some money it is art and I love challenges. Wood is unforgiving medium, one mistake and it is forever.

When I brought two doors to my Woodcarving Shop and check every detail I found out that those doors are not solid wood. Mahogany applied on top of pine wood and layer of mahogany only 1/8 of an inch thick. For me it is another challenge.  It translates that I would have to carve a different type of wood carving. In woodcarving world we call it ” Woodcarving  low relief “.

When you limited on deepness of wood, remember it is only 1/8″ you have to be really careful. Thanks God I have right tools for this type of job. I love my detail carving tools made by Ashley Iles from UK.
