    Glad you’re back and able to pick up your knife, Diana.

    Once you go through the Essentials Course you’ll see dramatic changes in your cuts and chips!

    Thanks for posting and looking forward to hearing more from you in the days ahead!

    Way to go, Neil!!

    Impressive letter carving. You should be pleased!

    I think you could go either way on finishing this one. You’ve got great shadows so the choice is up to you. Leave the shadows or stain?

    Looking forward to what you decide!

    Hi Pam,

    When printing the pdf patterns, be sure the settings is “Print Actual Size”.

    Give that a go and let me know if any issues persist.

    Some patterns have overly black lines so everyone can see them. Sorry about that.

    Thanks for posting, John!

    I’m always interested in different ways to display chip carving.

    I’ve got several roughed out bowls I’ll get to one of these days 🙂

    This from David Bass…

    Just adding my two cents. When I first started I used to have an iron grip on mine and would up with sore fingers and forearm. You may want to loosen your grip a little bit. Also I have found that some basswood is harder to cut than others. So, if it seems  like you are trying to carve a brick use Marty’s method of spraying it with a water/alcohol mix, which could soften it a bit.

     

    I hope that helps.

    You’ll learn how to avoid some of the issues you ran into when carving this.

    Welcome to MyChipCarving, Jim!  I hope others will reach out to you as well, although the Community can be a bit silent, unfortunately.

    Hope to see you at the next webinar, tomorrow night!
