This set was made over 8 months between November 2008 and June 2009 , but not carving full time, I had lots of rests periods. This piece was made with a fair bit passion and was donated to the Abbey Museum in Caboolture Queensland. http://www.abbeymuseum.asn.au/vi_history.htm
Very proud of this carving, and put it out to you people to be judged. Your comments are welcome.
The board is Black bean and Silver Ash 730 mm square and each square is 84 mm
