no previous part Part 1 of Scoop Carving series Part 2: Starting to shape the scoop »

I got a plan for a scoop that is chip carved in a carving magazine called hand carved Christmas gifts Volume 2

this is the start of the whole carving process. These PICs are the rought out that I have started. This is my 3rd carving ever and it is my very 1st from scratch. Lets hope we all learn something from ths.Photobucket
Photobucket
The wood is basswood 1 inch thick by 1 3/4 inches wide by 4 inches long
I will post more as I start carving
P.S This one is for you RiverGirl

traced the pattern on to the wood using carbon paper. If you want the plan that I used PM me with email address

Can you explain how you did your rough out? When I did mine it still looked like a lump. Yours has some shape to it.

I cut it out on the band saw side view first then shaped it with my carving knife. It still don’t look like the plan yet. I am thinking about writing the magazine and asking for more clarification on getting it to look like the one in the plan. Does that help you?

Yes, thanks. As for writing the magazine- they will probably tell you that after you make like 100 more it will look more like theirs. LOL At least that’s what they would tell me I ‘m sure!
