Photo V carve project

I grabbed this photo off our Pastor's FB page and will give this to him tomorrow at church, so he doesn't know I did this for him.

This is a photo V carve that I did in Carveco and cut into Maple, about 6" x 11".

I used a 60° V bit from Amana and this is my first time to use their bits. This one cut extremely well, btw! Absolutely no tear out on the carving and very clean across the entire board.

The finish is my fairly standard for this type of work - Nitrocellulose sanding sealer, Mohawk Van Dyke Brown glazing stain, followed by a coat of semi-gloss lacquer.

As is the case with most things, there is a proper viewing distance. The closer you get the less this looks good, but viewed at arm distance or even a little further it looks really good. My iPhone tries to do facial recognition on each face, kinda cool, I think!
