About Us

In 2007, after teaching in the classroom and online for 30 years, I knew I wouldn’t continue teaching middle school and high school students for the rest of my career. Having chip carved for all of these years I decided to use my teaching experience to help others learn how to do this amazing craft. I began creating rudimentary videos using my webcam. Since then the journey has been exciting as I’ve been able to teach 1000’s of people to chip carve. I still hold to what I’ve said from the start, “I can teach anyone to chip carve!” Along the way I’ve met so many interesting and appreciative people. Welcome to My Chip Carving!

Marty Leenhouts is a professionally trained teacher and owner of My Chip Carving and EZcarving and with over 30 years of teaching and carving experience.

He is also the author of Chip Carving Essentials, A Step-by-Step Guide to Successful Chip Carving. 2014, ISBN: 978-1-63315-269-4. Marty has taught classes throughout the US and internationally.
