These projects are really awesome! I haven't done much carpentry woodworking, but did some carvings as a hobby. Just three examples I made from mahogany: The BK2000 backglass, 5" thick and to scale of the actual glass. Next two are Japanese panel art (approx. 12" X 6") and a thrasher shark from a crotch cut branch (approx. 2' in length X 6" thickness)

Quoted from pinball_faz:

Dude! Nice work! How did you do that? Knives or a grinder tool.

Thanks! Used a variety of power and hand tools. Started with a router and/or grinder to clear out excess and make different levels of depth. Then, used dremel, punch tools, knives rasps & files to shape and detail.

Quoted from pinball_faz:

How would you mount such a piece? Lighting would seem tricky. Although I can't imagine photos will capture the depth of the piece.

The shark is on a wall near a window which captures the light fairly well. It's not heavy, so it hangs off eye hooks and nails. The BK2000 is underneath the shark, angled back on a painter's easel since its bulkier. The Japanese piece is light enough to stand on its own. Lighting definitely is a challenge, depending on where the sun is. May have to use some pinball LEDs to uncover those shadows
