I designed this pattern to use with my Chip Carving Essentials students this year. The pattern is composed of 3-corner chips of various sizes, square chips, gothic shapes, round cuts, and a simple rosette. The Cutting Knife, Modified Knife, and Stab Knife are used when carving this design so students get practice with all three knives.
I’ve yet to apply a finish to this box, but when I do it will be sanding sealer followed by spray satin lacquer.
As always, thanks for looking!

Very nice. My Father-in-law was a chip carver and would have loved this. Looks like a good challenge for your students.

Hi Marty
This looks like a great project and a very good way to learn chip carving. I took a peak at your website that is very impressive plus your site has a lot of choices and levels of one line classes.

Thanks, Pimzedd! I think my students will be up for the challenge.

a1Jim, From the looks of your website, we are trying to accomplish some similar goals with our teaching. I’m glad to see you have a family business. My daughter ships all of my products for me which is great for both of us!

jim65, Maybe I should come and teach a chip carving class in Italy!

Hey DKV,
I’ve wanted to combine chip carving and scrollsawing! I think they’d go nicely together.
That said…why not get into both :-).
