no previous part Part 1 of Chip Carving Class - Wine Bottle Holder series Part 2: Picture of what we'll be carving »

Welcome to another chip carving class! In this class I will take you step-by-step through the process of chip carving a wine bottle holder. We’ll start things rolling in early March.

This leaves you plenty of time to sharpen your knife and gather needed supplies. Here’s a list of what we’ll be using:

Basswood wine bottle holder (we’ll be carving a different pattern than the one shown)

Chip carving knife (I’ll be using the My Chip Carving Knives like the one shown below)

Metric ruler
Flat lying trammel set (not required, but very handy)
Mechanical pencil with soft lead
White plastic eraser
Assorted templates (not required)
Universal sanding sealer
Lacquer, satin, spray

If you need any of these supplies, they are available in the My Chip Carving Store. Basswood wine bottle holders ($8.00) are the last item in the “Household Items” section.

I’m looking forward to seeing you in class.
Email me if you have any questions.

Until then,
Marty Leenhouts

Clicked on ‘Watch” and am anxiously waiting Marty. Thanks for doing this. Been looking to try chip carving and this seems like the perfect opportunity.
