Two done...Only ten more pieces left to carve

Two flat panel upper pipe shades that will appear on either side of the center tower for J. F. Nordlie's new pipe organ being built for the Cathedral in New Ulm, MN, are waiting to be covered in gold leaf.

Not including design and layout work, over 200 hours were spent carving these two pieces.  Two smaller flat panels will hide the pipe bases, and each of the three towers with have curved upper and lower pipe shades.

Now I am carving ornamentation on the black walnut support brackets for the keyboard counsel, which is soon to be delivered.
