Chip Carving Class - Quilt Squares #8: Lesson 4: Pattern Transfer

03-15-2011 01:53 AM by MyChipCarving | 16 comments »

Lesson 4: Pattern Transfer The goal of pattern transfer has got to be to get the pattern on the wood as quickly, easily, and accurately as possible. That should be our goal. In this video I’ll show you three methods for pattern transfer. The first two methods work fine and I used them exclusively for many years. But they are slower, more difficult, and not as accurate as the third method – which is using the Pattern Transfer Tool. I suppose you can tell which method I pre...

Chip Carving Class - Quilt Squares #7: Lesson 3: Pattern Development, Part 2

03-13-2011 05:48 PM by MyChipCarving | 13 comments »

I know that drawing and working on patterns is not enjoyable for many chip carvers. With that in mind, we will start carving tomorrow. I’d still like to encourage many of you to give pattern development a try.I’ll provide some patterns for you to carve. Adding your patterns to the mix will give our finished project more variety. Also, there’s a great sense of satisfaction knowing that the pattern you are carving is one that you came up with on your own. Here’s an...

Chip Carving Class - Quilt Squares #6: Lesson 3: Pattern Development

03-12-2011 11:15 PM by MyChipCarving | 8 comments »

Lesson 3: Pattern Development The project we are tackling in this class is a chip carved quilt. Quilt patterns lend themselves very well to chip carving. Geometric in nature, various elements of a quilt pattern can be removed to create a carved version of the fabric quilt. If there is a quilter in your household, no doubt there will be a book, magazine, or quilting journal in the bookcase, magazine rack, or under the bed (maybe only in my house). Get one out and page through it thinking...

work bench #9: Frame for drawers and panels

03-12-2011 04:41 AM by gpastor | 2 comments »

The poplar panels are 3/8” ...
