Click on any picture to see a larger version.

Mickey Hudspeth teaches the Introduction to Chip Carving class at Highland a few times a year. Since it is an intro class, we weren't sure how much Mickey gets to show off the impressive advanced chip carving work he regularly produces, so we thought we would show it off for him. Take a look below at some of his pieces and sign up for Mickey's next class at Highland if any of these pieces inspire you to want to try your hand at chip carving!
