This chip carved tissue box was the first chip carved project I did. It was a seminar that I followed through the carving club I belong to – Richmond Carving Society. It was made from basswood and I finished it with a dark Danish oil.

Very, very nice. Your carving abilities are certainly varied.

Anna, what a nice job of employing a number of styles and techniques. This is beautiful work I especially like the delicate interlocking triangle border around the “front” side of the box. The symmetrical curves probably presented a real challenge. What did you use to carve with?

Very pretty work! I always wanted to learn to chip carve. I even have the knives. I just need to find the time. You are certainly very talented. Everything looks so precise! Beautiful piece!

Thanks all for your kind comments. Al, I carved this using one of Dennis Moor’s chip carving knives. I now use BeeBe knives. Gshepherd, I can’t remember how long it took me to finish this project as I had others on the go as well. I think now that I’ve done more chip carving something like this would take me a few evening working a couple of hours at a time. A special thanks to you Sheila – you were my inspiration to join LJ.
