This is a layered 32” chip carved star that I just finished. The edges are stained and the surfaces were bleached before chip carving. Basswood was the choice of wood for this one. All compound cuts so precision was a must because of the layers.

Wow. Super tight mitres. Compound angle cuts are tough and these came out super tight.

I’ll take it to the last two shows this year and then it will probably just hang on a wall in my studio and collect dust. LOL!

Once again your attention to accuracy and details are what sets you apart from those around you. Good luck with your entry into the shows. It’s about time the judges gave credit for the skill and craftmanship that is required to produce high quality and precise chipcarvings
