    I’ll leave Doug’s post but know that the basswood I sell in the MyChipCarving Store is always clear, clean and creamy white.

    It comes from NW Wisconsin which is prime basswood country. Always northern grown.

    It needs a bit of sanding with 220 grit but that’s about all.

    Hello Terry and welcome to the My Chip Carving Community!

    Your goal to chip carve ornaments for your congregations is possible, but you’ll need to get started on Step 1 soon.

    Step 1: Go lesson-by-lesson through the Chip Carving Essentials Course. https://mychipcarving.com/courses-overview/ This Course is included with the Platinum and Ruby Memberships. https://mychipcarving.com/membership/

    when you start the Course it will help you build a solid foundation. When the time comes to start carving ornaments, I can help you with a pattern that you can find success with!

    I’ll see you in the Course,

    Marty

    The easiest way to locate video in the Video Archive is to use the Search bar.
    Use “Lettering” and “Font” individually and that will bring up all of the videos I’ve created to date
    Happy carving!

    Gary!

    Your work continues to get better and better! I really like this plate, the pattern you created and the skill you executed in the chip carving.

    Keep a good thing going!!

    Try using a circle template. The ones I have are thin and flexible so they curl nicely around round objects. The circle will be a little distorted but it won’t be noticeable when the carving is done. Looking forward to seeing your pictures!

    Hello Brandon,
    Laying out patterns on eggs is a challenge as you’re finding out. If you haven’t watched it already, check out
    the video where I show you how to make a layout rotating gizmo from a small cardboard box. It really helps laying out lines in both directions to get a consistent grid for your pattern. Go to Videos/ and Search “egg”
