Before I went on vacation I turned a plate from basswood and read the book “chip carver,s workbook” from Dennis Moor. I also exerted some things from his book. And last week I made sitting in front of my caravan this plate. There are many things on the plate that can be improved, but for my second chip carving attemt I,m satisfied. I don,t know I will do chip carving at home but on my vacantion I like it. BTW the wether is fine, 32 degrees, and no rain.

Amazing work and only the 2nd one so far. You’ve got a real talent for chip carving Dutchy.

A very nice piece! The intricate and accurate carving is quite a feat.

32C or 32F? Enjoy your vacation! Maybe someday I will visit that area, as I have only seen parts of Helsinki, Moscow, St. Petersburg,

BTW: My English is pretty good and my Dutch is non-existent.

Beautiful work Dutchy! I also have taken to chip carving while camping (US version of caravan). You are much better than I though. I am still making a mess of practice boards. Enjoy your vacation.

I like it very much, I think you can be very proud and it is only you second carving. Doing this sort of thing on camping trips is a great idea I had never thought of. When I was a boy on camping trips with Boy Scouts we would always have a whittling project to work on by the campfire.
