This is my latest chip carving. It is a serving tray. It’s about 16” long and 8.5” wide. It’s made of basswood and it took about 8 hours to complete. Thanks for looking.

-- While teaching a class, a gentlemen once asked me: "When chip carving an intricate design, what do you do when you are almost finished and the wood breaks off?" I replied "Cover the kids ears."

Painstaking work. Geometric thread has a pile of beauty and appeal. I have no patience. LOL…..
