I am thinking out loud in this post. The more I look through furniture that draws me in, the more I see ornate carved wood.
I didn't make this piece, I am no where near this skill level. I would love to learn how they did this!
And look at this beautiful, antique bed! I have searched online to try and find ways to make furniture like this.
Long story short: each one of these fantastic pieces is carved by hand. Someone took the time to chisel and sand out each detail and that's why each of them are so fabulous.
I really admire the artistry and the detail. People have carved the most unusual things out of wood that are absolutely stunning. Here are a few examples:
Isn't this incredible? This owl looks so real! Every feather is a piece of carved wood.
This is a neat musician, again an artist took the time to carve each tiny detail! I don't ever see myself having the patience or skill to do this but I can appreciate someone who took the time and had the talent. I have purchased wood and plaster carvings to go on furniture before. Here is a plaster one I am about to use and that I have colored.
For now I will continue using these but maybe, just maybe, I might ask for a set of wood chisels for my birthday. ;)
