Here's what I've been working on this past weekend. It's a maple panel that I glued up a long time ago and I worked on a digital design for awhile before deciding on this layout.
I photoshopped a Trojan helmet I found online and tweaked the design to work with my Dremel bit sizes. Yes, I dremeled the whole design out which took awhile but I think it looks pretty great!
I painted the carving with acrylic paint and then sanded the design to give it a crisp edged.
All that's left is some routing of the edges and to apply a clear coat of something awesome to protect the wood.
Thanks for checking out my work! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone!
