Chip Carving: Design & Pattern Sourcebookby Wayne Barton
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).

I have half a dozen books on chip-carving, but have used this one by far the most. The patterns are beautiful and range from relatively simple to what I would consider very challenging. The project ideas are awesome, and it's an all- in-all terrific sourcebook.
An invaluable source for anyone interested in chip carving, from novice to the more experienced. Loaded with great patterns and information to help make this form of carving more enjoyable for anyone who picks up a knife. Wayne Barton is a true master carver and teacher.
