[Medal Chest] Relief carving is good for the soul.

*Note to my readers—this is the secret project I’ve mentioned a few times.  It has consumed my shop time since February.  That’s why it’s been so slow on the blog for the last few months.  Now that it has been delivered, I can post the details.*

I just love relief carving.  It’s so relaxing.  And it’s pretty comfortable on the mini-bench too.  Though I will look into making an angled piece to hold the work so I don’t have to crane my neck over the work.  My neck gets a little sore spending a few hours doing this… But that’s nothing a cold beer at the end of the day can’t fix.

Here’s the latest progress shot:IMAG2863
