    Hi Didi,

    You can increase the moisture content in wood if need be. Go back to the Forums page and you’ll see several posts about “moisture content”. Those will help you.

    if you have other questions you can post them there.

    Hopefully someone can jump in with a resource for chip carving knife sheaths.

    Hello Mord and welcome to the MyChipCarving Community!

    Chip carving is a hobby for everyone, whatever size and shape your hands are.

    You’ll have to make some adjustments depending on how the knife sits in your hand. If you’d like to take a picture of your hand while holding the knife and post it here I’ll be glad to offer you some direction.

    You can DO this! I’ll be here to help as will other Community members 🙂

    Thanks for posting, David.

    A sharp knife is crucial whether carving EZboard or basswood.

    Good work experimenting with different combinations and arrangements of chips!

    Nice,

    Marty

    I had a lot of fun carving this. I put 4 coats of outdoor polyurethane on it so it can be washed when i need to.  Nancy

    I like that font. I’ll be sure to download it now.

    I’ve been sharing some uses of Inkscape with members and it can indeed bend lettering around a shape.

    I just need to learn how to make it on inside AND outside of a curve :-).

    Thanks for sharing, Mitch!

    Hey Mitch,

    More excellent work as we’ve come to expect from you! Thx for the fearless closeup pics so we can see your talent.

    I like your choice of font and color.

    would you mind sharing what font you used and also how you created the curved lettering? Software used?

    Your carving is inspiring and helps all of us carve better!
