chip carving

Winston James, a reader of this blog, bought one of my spoons a week or two ago. With his check, he sent this example of his work, in basswood. I’m thrilled to have it, it’s on display in the kitchen now. Thanks Winston. Nice going. (the lighting is weird because I shot them quickly in the shop before I went to Maine…)

Now, who’s going to cut this stuff in oak? Any takers? If you KNOW how it was done in oak, I’d like to hear it. No speculation, just the facts…
