Intro to Chip Carving

Chip carving is a form of relief carving in which the carver removes precise chips from the surface of the wood with a small extremely sharp knife. The instructor will demonstrate what chip carving is, the safety issues involved and demonstrate various types of cuts including cutting triangles, canoe shaped chips, and rosettes patterns. Then each student will practice by making cuts on pattern boards.
