Project Information

In March I decided that I would chip carve the 10 commandments in a wooden scroll for this years large carving. It's been a long drawn out journey but I finally completed it just in time for the first woodcarving show. This is all 8/4 basswood glued together to make the 28" wide x 36" tall scroll. Carving the scroll and chip carving was the easy part for me. The design process is always the tough part for me. I also did something different for me and that was the stain highlighting of a few areas.

Hi Roger,
Another top notch carving. You must have been thinking a lot about God's Law as you worked on this project.
I'd be glad to share this work with my members. If you'd like me to do this please email [email protected] with several pictures and I'll include them in a future E-letter.
Keep at it!

Roger, that is very impressive work from the design to the carving!

Does anyone sell "woodout" in case you make a mistake?
I am positive that if I tried that I would definitely need some!

Wow! I may have to try chip carving, if for no other reason than to really appreciate all the work, effort and love that went into this. Thanks for sharing, Roger.
