Here is a hearth kick board I carved for a Woodstock Soapstone
wood stove in our home. A pattern was found. It was scaled to the
dimensions I specified, and I carved it out and installed it.
Here are the finished carved pictures. The wood used is basswood.
The pattern is off center to allow for the trim molding installed
along the top edge. The carving will be centered after the
molding is installed.
Here are close-up pictures of the finished project. The stain is a
Minwax Red Oak and the finish is a polyurethane.
