332 - 3D Illusion plate

February 2017 - I saw this project in the Spring 2017 issue of Woodcarving Illustrated and before I undertake the project which will be a 10 inch plate, I chip carved this one on a 4 inch plate that I made on my Shopsmith lathe. It is 3/8 inch thick and is finished with Watco Dark Walnut Danish Oil. The face of this plate is actually flat but it looks 3D round when you look at it.
