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.
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
