Chip Carving: Design & Pattern Sourcebook
Chip carving offers so many choices—and this bounty of patterns was specifically chosen to provide carvers with experience in many styles, including lettering, signs, geometrics designs, positive-image, and free-form work. The projects feature more than 125 different ornamental plates, boxes, wall plaques, cabinets, chair backs, house numbers, lamp bases, lap desks, and other creations. New to this edition: a lettering chart for readers to trace and then carve. To make things even easier, you use only the two most readily available knife blades (W.B. Premier No. 1 and No. 2) and the most versatile, workable woods (basswood and butternut).
Wayne Barton is the preeminent American chip carver. He has won both national and international awards and his carvings are found in private collections around the world. Barton is a longtime columnist for Chip Chats, North American Woodcarvers Association magazine, and Fine Woodworking, and has written five popular books on woodcarving.
“[Barton’s] skill is astonishing—it appears that he can apply outstanding carvings to any surface.” —Library Journal
