I did a carving demo on the 4th of July. I didn't do a whole lot of planning ahead of time but I knew I wanted to work on an "S" curve pattern so I printed a few pictures to work from. Then I grabbed a piece of red oak offcut, my bench, and tools and headed out the door.
It was a good day. I visited with a lot of people as I worked away carving out the pattern. I got a long way but I didn't quite finish the carving. I pulled up to the bench this morning and finished the carving. It's a fun pattern to pull off.
There's one problem. Usually I have a project in mind when I start a demo. A document box, a panel, something. This time I just carved a random oak board, and I'm a little lost about what to do with it now. It measures 38 1/2" long by 8" wide. It's too wide to be a good rail for a joined chest, and it's now panel shaped. It's too long to be a side for a document box.
What would you do with it?
