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.

Premier No. 1 and No. 2) and the most versatile, workable woods (basswood and butternut).
