well, for sure, I will never be able to carve like that. Most of mine end up as creative firewood. Ed

We all start somewhere, but with each chip you will get better and better.
Focus on proper technique as presented in these lessons and then learn from chip-to-chip.
You can do it and you WILL get better.

Ok, those are awesome, so, now,
here are 2 of the “Rookie” chip carved squares….. lol complete with “cupping” hahaha
I hope they’ll straighten out.
I wish I coulda done a few more, but, I’ve had too many irons in the fire. I know, it’s an excuse.
This was a great class. I hope to include a bit o chip carving/s in some future projects.
Thnx Marty for your expertise, and all Lumberjocks involved.
Good luck with the quilt auction.
I’ll get these in the mail soon.

Nice carving, Roger!
Did you finish the back of each square to help them stay flat?
If not, you can put a moist towel on the back to add some moisture.
Then let them sit and flatten out.
When dry and flat, finish the back.

Thnx Marty.
After realizing what was going on, I put the seal coat on the backs. I’m hoping they will straighten out.
Like I said…....... me be “Rookie” lol
I’ll spray em tomorrow with the Satin Clear you recommended.
I guess I shoulda followed instructions a bit better. I’m guilty of NOT reading the whole instructions on appying the finish. :)
I didn’t seal the back at 1st like I should have, cuz I figured the glue you were going to use wouldn’t stick.
I’ll see what they look like tomorrow

Way to go, Russ. I like how you pushed the design variety in each square.
These will be a nice addition to our quilt!

Marty,

I took your suggestion of looking at various qulting patterns and then resized them to fit my woodl. I also use the transfer tool and graphite paper as well as paper and pencile. As always I tend to like to do to much on each of my items. I need to more simple and not get so details. I thinks its my Algebra teacher mentally I get when I chip-craving. I must say yours I just greatl. I am still learning after 6 years but you taught me alot. I believe everyone gets their own particular style just as in music. MY tendency is to be overly complicated and detailed. I like mixing up the patterns on the square so I got more contrast. However that tendency gets me into trouble with smalll items like these. My lines are not as straight as I wished even though I attempted to cut looking ahead of the line. Anyway, I really enjoy myself with these and would like to do more in the future.

Ooops. I thought the class was over and didn’t take pictures of mine before I shipped them to you. You should be receiving 9 or 10 of them any day now. Sorry about that. My mistake.
