Grid 1

Found a cool trick to help with the dry air of winter carving. I’ve been placing a piece of dampened paper towel around the wood blank an hour or two before I carve. When I first did it, I just put it on one side, which lead to some weird warping, but when the blank re-dried it was flat again (whew).

This pattern relies almost entirely on the basic triangle cuts, so it’s good for practice. I used a simple flower motif in the center, it can be left blank or used for something more creative. :)

Good work posting these chip carving patterns!
I like that you kept them basic so someone fairly new to chip carving can find success.
If you’d like to share them with me, I can share them with my members.

I recognize your handle. Are you a My Chip Carving member?
