Here is a recently finished piece. It was a reproduction of an existing halltree. I carved the pieces using a photograph for patterns and attached them to the halltree. The halltree was made by another woodworker in SC. The entire piece was made from quartersawn white oak as were all the carved pieces. There were 24 pieces carved in total.
All the pieces were carved using just 5 gouges and one flat chisel. There was very little sanding done and 280 paper was used, mainly to just knock the edges down a little.
It was a great piece to work on and definitely one for the portfolio.
Hope it comes out right, having trouble with the photos.
