These are a few carvings from Fall 2000. The grapes are a Nora Hall design I carved in Mahogany. The chip carving is in Basswood. The knight is my own design carved in Butternut. These are a from some of the carving classes I taught at Woodcraft. The knight is now a panel in the headboard of a child’s bed. Photos of actual photos.

Thank you. You should continue on with the chip carving. After a short time the strokes and position of the knife becomes more natural.

I like the bunch of grapes. This is a skill I want to focus on more. It’s keeping me out of the Chippendale period.

Thanks, it was fun to carve. If you pick up a few books and videos and start do a little carving here and there the skill will come. I learned the most by watching videos. Shells are not to bad to carve and a good project to learn from.
