Chad, this is an interesting video. Thanks for the post. It helps demistify the process of chip carving for me.

Very informative! And weird (not that there’s anything wrong with that)!

Did I like the carving demo, yes. The dancing; (as Borat would say) not so much.

Great video Brad in spite of the dancing! You could form your own brotherhood of chip carvers and call them the Chipmunks. By the way, you can also do that kind of carving with a straight bench chisel and get excellent results. Thanks for the entertainment and sharing your knowhow.

Chad, Great video! I hope Safety Dan recovers soon… You have inspired, so MickeyD and I have our chip knives and are making little chips everywhere. This could be habit forming!
