Here is the plate that I chip carved for the Frankton Heritage Days Woodcarving Show. It took me about four months to complete. That is, working an hour and a half every Thursday at carving club. I won three ribbons, First place, Best of class, Best of group.

Now I like that, especially as chip carving is “thing”. Well done, good for you!

Great piece, I know how hard it is to stay consistant when you move through the grain in a circular pattern>

That’s very precise chip carving and a beautiful plate.
