Your work looks splendid, and has its own distinct character, congratulations once more!

I love the contrast of the woods and the silver inlay. I use a lot of boxwood in my work and often I acid stain it with nitric acid and water 50/50 and just a little iron dissolved, afterwards neutralize in warm linseed oil for a day or two.

Keep posting .... !

rod, graniteguy52, Mike Cirelli, Titian, spadebit, FANCYGUN and KCSteve,
Thanks for the kind words :happyvise:

I enjoyed the fact, that my work is not perceived as off topic

In reality, miniature carving, as a way of working is much similar to engraving, than to the classical "large" carving.
For this I want to show my works in places like this

Thanks again
