Lesson 2 – Carving the 6-point rosettes

With the layout of our pattern complete (see Lesson 1), we’re ready to start carving. Before making the first cut, it is important to make sure your knife is razor sharp. CLICK HERE to review the lesson on sharpening.

Now we’re all set to carve the overlapping rosettes on the front of our wine bottle holder. Enjoy the lesson and good luck with your carving! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

More chip carving in lesson 3!

Hello Boris,
I am carving northern grown basswood. It is a tight grained, soft, wood that is perfect for all kinds of carving, chip carving included. Good luck with your carving.
