In this collection of 29 projects, woodworkers of all skill levels are taught several variations of chip carving—the timeless art of decorating a wood surface by removing chips of wood with short triangular-shaped cuts—including basic chip carving, line carving, shallow-chip carving, and highly stylized European chip carving. Featuring patterns from a host of preeminent chipcarvers—such as Barry McKenzie, Dennis Moor, Darrell Jannsen, and Roger Strautman—this handy guidebook includes Christmas ornaments, a beautiful line-carved birdhouse, a handsome chip-carved chess set, and fun chip-carved golf balls with intricate, geometrical designs.
