This type of wood turned out to be rather "noisy", so I had to limit the hammering as much as I could. Can't risk any fights with the neigbours.
Careful gouging worked, and proved far more relaxing.

Started: first week of May.
Today I shaped the panel into its finite form.

I made a start on the pattern.
