Very nice work, it is tricky not to split the wood when it gets so thin. They look so real, are you going to paint them or will you leave them wood-colored? (I vote for wood-color, or just a pale tint, to let the wood show!)
Thanks. We'll leave wood-colored. I agree with you - in colores such works are looking like plastic, and mordant hide linden wood with a very smooth texture. I try to upload next time a casket with similar design, but colored with mordant.
