Wow, Joe...that is amazing! Very nice job. Can you share some details on how you made it? Someone is going to be very happy to get such a beautiful gift.

Looks great. They and their family will enjoy that for generations.

Looks like stained glued up pine boards and then Vcarved. Correct?

Maybe sealed, stained and carved.
I tried v carving some oak I had dyed and the dye bled in a bit and left my edges not as crisp as I had imagined.

Could have been the combination of porous oak and the dye though.

Especially on softer (pine) and open grain (oak) woods...the "pre-stain" sealers make a world of difference in the appearance of the finished product, whether there is any further "cutting" into the wood or not. It comes in both water based and "volatile" form. I haven't ever used the water based stuff, but I'll swear by the Varathane "Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner" to prevent blotches (in pine particularly).

I recently ran several hundred feet of pine quarter-round in my daughter's house (that I bought "raw" and finished myself before cutting) and I was able to make it look great with both the antique (varnished and never painted) pine woodwork and the refinished oak floors that it abutted. Without the pre-stain, it would have looked like hell.

You might also experiment with one of the "gel stains"...less watery, I would think it would be less likely to really soak in to the fibers and more "sit on top"...it's not like this kind of project is going to get any "wear" on it.

used a 60 degree v bit, ran on a pre-stained board. Pretty happy with it, held detail really nicely and the stain didn't bleed.
