Relief Carving: Relief carved woodwork is three dimensional. It can be described as a form of woodwork that chips away bits of wood from a flat stock, such that the carving appears to be rising out of the wood. Typically, carving knife, chisel and hammer are used in this technique of carving wood. However, many carvers also employ power tools to quicken the process of removing unwanted materials from the wood. Depending on how raised is the carving from the back of the wood, it can be categorized as ‘high relief’ or ‘low relief’.
Feel free to change the measurements as well and create triangles in different sizes. That way you can create a quirky wall display with photo frames and cool triangle shelves. It will look exactly like in home decor magazines, you can be sure of that!
