I recently got into that art of chip carving. I wasn’t sure what to do with these carvings so my wife suggested I make them into serving trays. I now run NausetWood and make these trays part tme for high end gift shops on cape cod. I am retired and love working for myself. I am a worked as an industrial arts teacher for 35 years.

wow very impressive! I am also a Tech teacher, currently in my 12th year. I have been able to post so much over the last few days because we are currently giving the students our state’s “Keystone Exams”, PA’s standardized tests. Wish I was in the shop making dust, but at least I’m able to catch up on some stuff on here.

Where did you work? What Grade level? Sounds like to you have found a niche market, and on Cape Cod I’m sure you are able to find lots of buyers, as well. Can’t wait to see what else you have to post!

Those are extremely attractive. I bet you have no trouble getting them into high end gift shops with how nice and professional they look. I’d have a hard time picking which one to buy.

Great looking trays. I like the design, did you made it by yourself?

My chip carving is no where near as nice as yours Steve.
And, it a very cool idea making those panels into serving trays.
I bet you get a pretty penny for them.
(They do look very cool.)

And your nice work area makes me want to go out into my shop and clean up a little..haha

Thank you brother.
Your stuff rocks.
