Here’s another quick update on how this project is going. A little bit more detailing left and some final sanding and I’ll be on to Archangel Michael as another panel on my chalice box project. I should mention that all of the blue masking tape is just to protect the wood from dings while I do the carving.
The carving has been very enjoyable and I’m really only using a few chisels for the work. The only “special” chisel that I’ve used is a bent style ( much like a spoon ) to be able to scoop out along the archway on the top and bottom where access is limited. A nice project and certainly being done at the right time of year!
