It is actually @ColinTheMathmo’s fault that I decided to torture this poor innocent screwdriver.

It appears that this wood is actually a thin 3-layer plywood of some sort…it comes from a clementine box. I wonder if is pine, or something else.

Being plywood might explain why the wood is being easily removed to a consistent depth.

The sharpened screwdriver is perfectly sized to cut the edges, but I might have to make a smaller chisel to remove the material inside the grey rhombuses.

At this point, I do not know if this wood will hold fine details…


@ColinTheMathmo

The current state of things…I still have the background to remove.

It is not as accurate as I would have liked, but maybe it will work.


@ColinTheMathmo

@ColinTheMathmo i am thinking that I should go find a bigger chisel for the background 😊

@ColinTheMathmo i ended up getting the background off with the small screwdriver-chisel since I was too lazy to go and find a bigger one.

Now I need to cut all those little dividing lines…somehow

I might have to go find/make a little mallet or hammer to keep my palm from getting too sore.
