Hey guys, I'm building a couple of these bookshelves for a customer and I'm curious to know how you would go about making the square pieces on what I guess you could call a corbel near the top of the bookshelves. I have tried to carve them and I'm just not getting the result that I want. Btw, I don't claim to be a master carver either. Lol! Any help would be appreciated and I know the picture isn't all that great but it's the one the customer had sent me. Thanks!!!!

Thanks for the replies but I know what rosettes are. Lol! I guess you can call them rosettes still. But, these look like they taper in four directions like a diamond. I know its kinda hard to tell in the pic.

It kinda looks like it has a slight curve to it too. I'll give another go at trying to carve it. I just wasn't getting the look I wanted so I thought I would get some other opinions. Thanks a lot!!!

Hey guys, thanks for trying to help. I really appreciate it. But, this is a situation where it needs to be made from the same wood I am using being that I'm building this from some Walnut that my customer's husband cut down and milled before he passed away. So,needless to say it has some real sentimental value to it. I'll get it looking right eventually.... Thanks again!!!
