Imaginative, fresh, delightful. Three thumbs up.
Thanks for the link, Larry.
(btw.. his pricing doesn't seem out of line either.)

They still haven't found the source of that Canuckistani mutagen, have they? (Or is that simply the result of a really wild childhood, Rob?)

There was pricing on that site? The marionettes were a giveaway.

Wow, I'd like to see one in real life as the pictures just can't show the detail. Check out the pricing on them. http://www.gofraser.com/pricelist.htm The quilt just got crossed of my wife's Christmas list.

something big to clamp that thing. And in all kinds of positions.
But most importantly, would doing stuff like this be real hard on yor body? Particularly your back. From having to assume all kinds of positions to work in close.

he may be doing them on a 3 axis CNC machine from models built in one of the 3d modelling apps. there would likely still be significant hand work in sanding and paint, but the carving itself wouldn't hard on the back at all...

One could create a bump-map from an image in an app like Strata StudioPro then do a contour trace by density and convert to .dxf A cakewalk, really.
At the minimum, he might be projecting a contour trace map from a transparency with an overhead projector. I have done that by projecting a rendered image of a cabinet proposal (printed on a transparency) over the top of an industrial range at a customer's house. They could visualize the arches and mouldings..it sold the job. I was even able to scale the proposed unit somewhat by moving the overhead projector back and forth. Then, when the customer was happy, I traced some of the lines onto the wall, and did my measurements from there. Unfortunately, there isn't always room to set up a projector like that. I have used an overhead projector for projecting letters for signs as well. Bought the projector at a yard sale for $20.... Knowing what it can do for me now..I'd buy a new one if I had to.
Sooo simple. Find a font, kern it, scale , dick with it until happy, print it out on a transparency, project it onto whatever material (mostly solid surface in my case), trace it, jigsaw, badda bing etc....

You did see that you can click on the picture to make it larger?
My wife makes quilts, real ones, and sells them for much cheaper. ;~)

Um, no. Not even a little bit, but thanks for the thought. (I like popped woodgrain, like a wooden Ferrari, not paint.)
