How to Chip Carve Letters & Numbers

             Everything from A to Z!

Testimonial about this Course…

“I just finished up the Letters and Numbers course.

I have been chip carving for a handful of years now and have never been comfortable with letters or numbers. The few times I did try I swore I would never do a project that required them.

My story has now changed. I really do look forward to using them in projects. The techniques are easy to understand and follow and my confidence has gone from 1 to 100 after finishing it.

Marty I could not be more pleased with the course and feel I have truly grown with technique, my quality, and my confidence. I am now ready to take on other fonts to explore the possibilities.

Thanks Marty!”
