I just started with a compass and some pieces of card and eventually produced the design on plate shown, I had a rough idea of what I wanted and this is the outcome.

I am disappointed with the staining as I thought the plate would look better with some staining, however now that I have stained it I think the plate not stained looked better, as you all know its too late to go back now though!

Very nice…and the staining isn’t really bad…just a matter of personal opinion…I think it looks fine.

Having experienced the realm of chip carving myself, I can appreciate the amount of time and effort that went into this piece. It came out great, and you should be proud of your efforts. Keep them coming.

I enjoy chip carving also so I can truely appriciate the layout time! It usually takes more time to layout that carve on a project like that. Nice work and keep posting your chipping! Thanks for sharing.
