Chip carving is a hobby that can be done at the kitchen table with just a few hand tools, and which creates beautiful results. Only three knives are needed to make the three basic cuts (curved, triangular and straight) that can be combined into an endless variety of designs.
This is a complete yet straightforward course in chip carving. Moor covers choosing wood, selecting and sharpening knives, proper grip and cutting technique, and finishing. Seven easy and useful projects (napkin holder, plant box, letter holder, trinket box, tissue box holder, mailbox, and cheese & cracker tray) allow you to practice with borders, grids, rosettes and lettering.
