main surfaces. The inside of the curve is a concave surface and the outside of the curve is a convex surface. Another feature to note is that each scroll gets ncrrower and lower as it moves toward the center of the pattern. Study the photo of the finished carving to get the idea, then carve the scrolls in the following manner: First, angle the entire mass, making a smooth transition from the highest to the lowest point.
