OK, previously I did chip-carving on the box’s lid of The Manggo Box (box made out of manggo wood). That was too basic – just a series of straight lines. Now I wanted to try something a bit complex and challenging – “Grape Cluster” I saw this image at Osborne Wood Product Inc.
After spending an hour or so, I felt sleepy…and could not clearly see the pencil lines. Sometime did not follow the drawing. I combined two grapes into one…and made many changes..
I do not have any plan what to do with this carving, not until this post.
The wood used : Kembang Semangkok (Scaphium spp.)
Tools ( All-hand tools) Beginners carving chisels, Coping Saw, file and rasp.
Additional info : the chisels are very sharp out of box.
Thanks for looking – comments and suggestions are most welcomed, please please!
