    Those are great Donald! They remind me of the ornaments painted on Amish barns when I was a kid. Less of that with the steel pole barns and such. They look intricate.

    Chip carving always fascinates me because it requires a special type of focus and concentration that I don't have.
    Those are really nice.

    If those are practice boards I wonder how they will look when you go for real ones.

    Those look great to me already!!
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Great work, Donald. The sunflower looks very consistent...I'd think it was done by machine if I saw it in a store.

    My brother-in-law is interested in this type of carving. Do you have any recommendations for books or videos?

    Vaugh McMillan,
    Some authors would include Wayne Barton, Pam Gresham, Moore and others. Also, you can go online to youtube.com and watch mychipcarving videos or mychipcarving.com site. Very helpful.
