This basswood napkin holder was chip carved using the Old World Style for the six leaf petals and traditional chip carving for the rest of the design. It has been finished with my quick and easy finish, sanding sealer and several coats of spray satin lacquer. Thanks for looking! If you’d like to learn how to chip carve, check out my website. Also, I hope to offer a chip carving class on LJ in early 2014. Stay tuned!

You got some serious carving skills! Like the details, wood and finishing. Great job!
