Ready to install

The Celtic knot carved panel is complete and ready to install as soon as the finish is dry.  Now I had better get all the support pieces that hold it in place glued into the box bed and painted.

This is a sneak preview of the type of details I will be putting on my line of  furniture for dollhouses that  I will eventually make and sell. It can be used in cabins, bungalows, cottages, fairy houses, witches cottages, Santa's workshops, castles and houses of many other eras including Arts and Crafts and today's homes. Timeless is a good description for it.

It turned out great Karin!
I'm excited to see your furnitureline, but even more to see how you incorporate this in your bedstee :)

I like it! Have you considered burning the wood with a soldering iron for added depth perception? It's a favorite technique. I'm looking forward to following your creativity... I was a professional artist for fifteen years, served my apprenticeship as a cabinetmaker and am a shipwright, mainly in wood and rigging - It all comes to an appreciation of your creations. Congratulations on your machining skills, by the way!

Thanks Jerr, actually I can have all the burn marks I want done with the laser, no need for a soldering iron. But I did not want burn marks this time around. This piece of carving is 2.5" wide.

It turned out beautiful! I'm very curious to see your line of furniture! That's a really good idea, I'll start saving ;)
