The traditional folk craft of chip carving is commonly used in Switzerland, Austria, and Germany for the decoration of all kinds of wooden objects. Only a few inexpensive tools and a small quantity of wood are needed to enjoy this craft, which is an excellent ans simple introduction to the broader realm of relief carving.
The most popular guide to this subject in Europe, Josef Mader's Chip Carving takes the reader step by step through the chip carving process, from layout of the design to the final cut and finishing of the piece. The use and care of chip-carving knives are also explained. Numerous photographs and drawings provide additional guidance by showing the progression of the design as cuts are made, and a portfolio of chip-carving designs used on furniture and boxes, and throughout the home, gives woodworkers exciting ideas.
