« Part 4: Lesson 1, Part 2 - Knife Sharpening Part 5 of Chip Carving Class - Quilt Squares series Part 6: Lesson 3: Pattern Development »

This class is new territory for me and for LumberJocks.

To help me pace the lessons properly, please reply to this posting with one of the following:

REWIND – slow down, I need to look at Lesson 1

PAUSE - give me a day or two and I”ll be ready for the next lesson

PLAY – I’m ready for the next lesson

FAST FORWARD – crank it up! I’m ready and rarin’ to go!

Since I’m following along in an informal way I’ll leave it to the others to determine the pace. I’m following your lessons on your website, the videos on carvinonline and I have 4 books about chip carving so I’m going to kind of learn at my on pace and see where it takes me. However, I’m going to also try to complete the exercises on this blog and make some quilt blocks too. I’ll put it this way – I’m sooooo excited about chip carving and what you can do with it. I think it’s sort of just what I’ve been looking for, Marty, so I hope that you can help me get to where I can do it tolerably well. Since I’m not going to follow along in a formal way on this blog I think it only fair that I no longer comment so that Marty can spend more time with you all. If I have a question that I can’t tackle I can always contact Marty by email since I’m following his online videos. I hope that all of you are as enthusiastic about learning how to chip carve as I am and that you all learn a lot in this class. I’ll be in the back ground trying to follow through the whole thing also and I’ll be rooting for everyone of you as well. So have a lot of fun and make some chips.

You can reply as often as you like. It is not detracting from my time with others in class.
I’m sure all the other students feel this way too.
Your enthusiasm is good for all of us!

Every lesson stay there, it is not been erased, and everyone can take the lessons at their own pace, so it can be play or fast forward!!!!

Marty, I just got my wood today, so I need to prepare the surface today. My knives are always sharp so I will be ready by late today. So go ahead.
