So, I have an issue with getting chips out of my practice board. Every time I cut it comes out in pieces doesn’t matter if against or with the grain. I am wondering if my wood is too dry to carve and if so is there a way to get moisture back into the wood? That is the only thought I have about it. I keep my wood out in the garage where I do practice most times but watching the videos while trying to learn I have to do it in my room. Any suggestions would be helpful.
