Step 1: Computer and Carvewright Setup

I used an image from a set design drawing. Imported it into the carvewright software and set it up to the way I wanted it. Also made sure the design would remove from the wood clean.

Step 2: Carvwright Carve

I uploaded the design into the carvewright, loaded the board and set it to go. The carve time was 5 hours because of the detail and size.

Step 3: Removeal and Clean

Once the board finished I used a razorblade to cut the tabs and any leftover connections to the piece. I then used fine sandpaper to clean the tabs and the surface detail.

Step 4: Staining

The final step was to go thought several stages of staining the piece to get the desired effect. I decided to stain the address surrounding figures dark the rest of the raised parts medium color and the lowered sections clear.
