Chip Carving.

  I finally went out and bought a chip carving knife and now I’m hooked. I love folk art and with folk art less is more. Chip carving can be done with one tool. No need to drop a grand on chisels or God forbid, use a laser engraver. I own a handful of carving chisels and can do quite a bit with those six chisels but chip carving allows the artist to create whatever they can imagine with one tool.

  The possibilities are endless and its very distracting going back and forth between filling orders and trying new chip carving patterns. I made a chip carved button in walnut and have plans for a small dovetailed box complete with carvings.
