Topic tags/keywords: chip carving holly 2

Most of my woodcarving is what is called chip carving and can be very detailed. This past year at a woodcarving show there is a very good miniature caricature carver who made a miniature chip carving. All I could say was “if he can do that I can.” So the challenge was on and at the Dayton woodcarving show there was a category for a carving that had to fit into a 2” cube so I made a 1 7/8” cube, just in case their box was small. LOL! I made this cube out of holly wood because of the small details basswood would not hold them and holly would. Well I did take a blue ribbon with it after all.

That looks very painstaking.. you must have a lot of patience to do that. You should post this as a project so more people will see it.

Debbie:

Maybe revise your challenge to be something to fit in a 2” box.

That way it wouldn’t be limited to carving.

After seeing this, I broke out a few of my antique carving knives to see if I could carve anything at all.
Nope.
Thats awesome.
Thanks for sharing!

I would experience death by a 1000 cuts. You create a masterpiece. Alas different we are.

Holy moses at the perfection in those cuts. I’m not sure I could do that, even though I’ve take a class with Barry…

Nice work!
