After some practice on scrap pieces, I have realized it was time to try a little chip carving project.

Woods are basswood and Mansonia (for the trims). Chip carving was made with a Flexcut knife.

Finished with Danish Oil. It will be sold for charity before Christmas.

Merry Christmas and happy Holydays to all.

That’s pretty sweet for a beginner!
Very nice work and well done on the donation. It will make more than one person happy.

If that’s your first shot at chip carving, looks like you hit the bullseye.
