I finally completed a pair of cabinet panels I’ve been intending to do for several months. They are 6” x 16” each and chip carved in basswood.

Wow! So- what does the rest of the cabinet look like? These panels are going to make any cabinet look great.

I have seen pro chip carvers work and this is in that league! Love them.

How long did one of these take to do and do you mark on the bare wood before “chipping” away?

oldnovice – I didn’t keep a record of the time, but I’d guess about 20 hours carving time each. You’re right. I pencil the pattern onto the bare wood before carving.

I would love to learn to Chip Carve. My local Carving Guild has had a couple of classes, but I always seem to miss them.
I also looked at your webpage….. such awesome work~
