Custom carving for a cabinet

I had a cabinetmaker contact me about making some small panels for him for a job that he was replicating. All I had was an image to go from and the timber that he supplied. I created a pattern to transfer the image onto the 4 pieces. I then used a router to set my levels and then used my set of carving chisels to carve the design. It was the first time replicating a design and was really happy how they finished. 

A few months later, I was asked to do some more work from him, carving some small corner pieces out of walnut. I had an example to work off which made it much easier. Relief work on a curved surface had its challenges but the results were great.
