Design across two faces
'Portrait' view
This is a nicely coloured Yew rectangle which features designs on all sides..
Detail from 'Fantasia'
Detail from 'Fantasia'
 I began by rounding off the edges, and sanding the surfaces to a really smooth finish, which allows a high degree of detail.
Running fox on the first 'face' to be completed
Owls fly across the second 'face' , in continuation of the design..
 The first two sides were worked upon to create a 'landscape' design, with fox, and owls..I then used the next two faces to create a 'portrait' design, using the natural wood markings to guide the emerging image..finally finishing with the ends.
This is the piece of wood I began with..
