Wow, this is the first in the series I’ve seen. I will now have to go back and watch the entire series. Thank you very much for producing this.

Excellent instruction! Every now and again I hear a lovely click and the chip comes out easily with clean sharp lines for my reward. It’s all the other times that you wish you could just refill the hole and start over…patience, patience.

Marty: Is it okay to do all of the #1 chips first, then follow up with all of the #2’s etc. on the border instead of working your way around the plate in blocks of 6 chips? As a beginner, I found it easier to remember the preferred order of the cuts within a single chip that way. Also repeating 3 angles with similar pressure (based on the size of the chip) seemed to produce more consistent results (for me) than changing the chip size so frequently.

This is a good point you’ve brought up, Beth. Yes, you can surely remove the chips in this manner. It can result in more consistent carving as well as more efficient movement.
