'A Head of the Curves' (Phase 7 - Right Antler) by Shane Wilson

The right antler has been partially refined, the curves are more accurately aligned and material from behind the intersections has been removed to assist with the illusion of the over/under weave pattern.

'A Head of the Curves' (Phase 5 - Right Antler) by Shane Wilson

The right antler is completely roughed out from start to finish.

'Ahead of the Curves' (Right - Phase 5a) by Shane Wilson
Roughing on right antler of the pair comprising ‘Ahead of the Curves’ by Shane Wilson is complete.

'Ahead of the Curves' (Right - Phase 5b) by Shane Wilson
A close up view of the roughing in progress on the lower right antler.

'Ahead of the Curves' (Right - Phase 5c) by Shane Wilson
Roughing of the right antler continues (note the fully roughed out left antler in the background).

'Ahead of the Curves' (Right - Phase 5d) by Shane Wilson
Works begins with a combination of 1/4” burrs on Foredom flexible shaft grinders and 1/8” burrs on the NSK Electer micro motor tool.

'Ahead of the Curves' (Right - Phase 5 - negative spaces) by Shane Wilson
Negative spaces are removed with a sabre saw. Some of the lower negative spaces could not be accessed with the saw and will be removed with rotary grinding tools.

'Ahead of the Curves' (Right - Phase 5 - pilot holes) by Shane Wilson
Outside edge material is removed with a band saw and then pilot holes are drilled with a drill press into the planned negative spaces, to allow insertion of a sabre saw blade.
