[Dovetail Box] Adding chip carving...

Flush with my modest progress in the last post, I decided to jazz up the little box some before attaching the bottom (which I have already cut and have waiting for installation).

My carving adventure begins!

12-21-2012 02:51 AM by RaggedKerf | 3 comments »

My lovely bride got me a book and two chip carving knives for my birthday on Tuesday. I have to say, I’m pretty darn excited. She got me Wayne Barton’s Complete Guide to Chip Carving have read it cover to cover already and today made my first cuts!
