Stationary box, chip carving #1: Chip carved top

02-28-2011 04:46 PM by MyChipCarving | 6 comments »

Last night I applied the pattern to the top of this 16×9” stationary box top and got started on the chip carving. This is a fun one, for sure. I created this design after looking many times at a table cloth pattern. I knew that table cloth design could be chip carved so I used the basic layout and created this design to fit the top of this box. Stay tuned for more carving on this box…Martyhttps://www.MyChipCarving.com

Holly pattern, Chip Carving, add color? #1: Chip carved plate, add color?

02-16-2011 06:21 PM by MyChipCarving | 21 comments »

I’m wondering what you think about my adding some color to this chip carved plate. From the start I’d planned on adding a light, transparent, oil-based green color to the leaves and red to the berries.But now that I’ve gotten this far in the finishing process, I really like the way it looks and I’m chickening out when it comes to doing anything else to this chip carving.What do you think?

Extremely Average #50: The Women of Ames

02-21-2010 07:08 AM by Ecocandle | 9 comments »

Sitting in the twenty-fourth row, seat 3, I prepare to watch the Iowa State Cyclones take on the Missouri Tigers in women’s basketball. To those who don’t follow NCAA division I women’s basketball, the Cyclones are one of the top programs in the country. They are consistently in the top 20, and are currently ranked 13th. When attending an ISU game, be it men or women’s basketball, one is sure to be impressed by ‘Hilton Magic’. The magic comes from the boisterous cheers of the fans, wh...

I'm gonna be a Star!! #4: the panels

08-06-2009 06:56 AM by kolwdwrkr | 14 comments »

I finally found some time to make a little progress on my star door. I did a bit more chip carving on the star itself and had the frame pieces cut. Tonight I made the panels around the star. I decide to plane up some redwood for contrast, and made them 1/2” thick. This makes them sit down in the frame and gives the star more depth. Instead of routing a full raised panel on them I opted for a rabbet and a cove. I used a core box bit to make the cove. So the star has a large cove a...

I'm gonna be a Star!! #3: Chip carving #1

07-23-2009 06:09 AM by kolwdwrkr | 11 comments »

So the chip carving has begun. I thought I would share a little bit of how to with you. I don’t have my entire pattern figured out, but I did choose this pattern for each of the points. So lets get started. You can purchase chip carving knives if you feel it is necessary, but I just use an old timer I’ve had since High School. It has 2 blades. The smaller blade is just fine for this type of work as long as you have it sharpened. Trace your pattern onto your piece by usi...

I'm gonna be a Star!! #1: the beginning

07-19-2009 08:46 PM by kolwdwrkr | 10 comments »

So off we go onto a new adventure. One of which I have not embarked upon. I’ve done hundreds of raised panel doors in my day, so the actual process is a cake walk. However, this being a star has already shown some complications. Now if you think this is going to be just a simple raised panel “star” door, well, I guess you don’t know me. LOL. It starts as a star, the thought of stained glass crosses my mind as being a part of the project but so does leather. Break...

2009 large chip carving #1: First phase of the carving

07-16-2009 12:05 PM by Roger Strautman | 11 comments »

Some of you may have remembered me from the past, I do chip carving on woodworking items. Every year I try and make one large chip carving for the carving shows and this year is no exception. I started this project in Apr and am just finishing the first phase. This is a 24”Sq. made of basswood with a walnut frame around it. When I make a carving like this I will make sample pieces just to make sure the design will work. This is all made using a knife. In the middle pinwhee...
