ninthwavedesigns photos downloadThe oil finish on the Elemental Celtic Cross woodcarving brought out a surprising amount of variation in the color of the wood. There is a deep dark reddish brown wave of grain that I have never encountered before when carving mahogany. What is interesting is that there wasn't a hint of this darkness at all while I was carving. There is no end to the surprises when working with wood! #ninthwavedesigns #carving #handcarved #woodcarving #handtools #traditionalwoodcarving #mahogany #woodgrain #surprise #smokey #spiral #celticart #celticart #celticcross #elements #elemental

ninthwavedesigns photos downloadThe painted finish is done for the 2016 plaque, and is drying now awaiting the final finish. As with the last plaque I carved, I had the most fun carving and painting the birds, so here is a detail of the American eagle with the Cuban trogan bird. #ninthwavedesigns #carving #woodcarving #handcarved #traditionalwoodcarving #womeninwoodcarving #formplaque #formplaqueproject #spsformof2016 #eagle #trogan #cuba

kevinshowell_custom photos downloadNothing too exciting in the shop today so another piece from years past. Phoenix Rising... This one has a story 16" tall basswood. This was part of a much larger carving installation for the opening of the Cooper Pub in Minneapolis, Minnesota, 2009 I believe. It had been The Cooper Theatre for many years and this was giving honor to that history. Designer and woodcarver Nathen Stanely brought me in on this one to carve details such as this. He had worked extensively with the client before doing all of the work for The Local, as well as some for Kieran's Irish Pub (the original) not sure if he worked on the Liffey. Anyone local will recognize this as being Kieran Folliard, who was an absolute pleasure to work with. He sold the pub's went on to develop Two Gingers Whiskey and is now on to developing The Food Building right here in NE Minneapolis Arts district! #neartsdistrict #nempls #thecooper #cooperpub #woodcarving #traditionalwoodcarving #woodsculpture #phoenixbird #customwork #interiordesign #interiors #commercialinteriors​ #architectural #design #dsignbuild #twogingerswhiskey #mplsfood #twincities #qualitymade #handmade #beauty,hope,significance

ninthwavedesigns photos downloadWaxing Philosophic: I am in the process of waxing the Flow Back Atlantic Salmon carving - a process that enhances the natural beauty of the wood itself. The carving is only one aspect of this piece. It is the pattern, color, glow and shimmer of the wood grain that brings it all together. I am ever grateful to the wood - the trees - for the privilege of creating with this beautiful material. #ninthwavedesigns #nofilter #nofilterneeded #mahogany #wood #carving #handcarved #woodcarving #womeninwoodworking #traditionalwoodcarving #atlanticsalmon #salmon #flowback #woodgrain

johndavidcarver photos downloadI turned this carver's mallet a couple of days ago. It's #lignumvitae , what's left of the "log" is on the left. It was found by a fellow carver in the Bahamas. No telling how long it laid around in the sand! No rot at all. A beautiful amazing wood, smells sweet when working, and it's very heavy!#woodcarving #traditionalwoodcarving
