Very large foldout chip caring

I work construction by day and woodworker by night. I decorate my woodworking pieces with chip carvings. This piece is and art piece that I created for a few woodcarving shows that I attend. This is a wall hanging that is 24” sq. and has 4 triangles hinged on it. When this is opened it becomes a 36” diamond. The dark wood framing is walnut and the light colored wood is basswood. I wanted something a little different so I cut a circle out of the middle of the 4 hinged panels. Fitting the panels was a long process. If you want more details I can post them for you.

a truly inspired piece of work. The chip carving is extraordinary and the idea with the folding panels seems unique to me. In other words, some really wonderful work.
