Way advanced beyond my skills. I like how she keeps turning the platter to get the best angle for the cut. I don't think enough carvers do that. Instead, they'll try to approach a cut from an awkward angle and risk messing it up. Awkward cutting angles also induce a lot more fatigue into your hands.

Wow, very cool, but so tedious.  Not sure I could focus on it long enough to make any progress with something like that.

One of the first things that caught my eye..another thing was her choice of knife and the control she has with it. The way she holds it would be tiring to me..I think most chip carvers use blades shaped more like a hawk's beak. But her work is perfection, no doubt..

Anyone who's done it, turning the work is SOP in chip carving.

What is interesting is her technique. The use of a stab knife and pushing rather than pulling. Neat. Looks like she's custom ground the blade.

BTW, I took a class from Wayne Barton and sat 3 feet away watching him demonstrate. 90% of his cuts the chip popped with no clean up. Jaw dropping.........

In production carving we make as many cuts as we can before turning the work or repositioning the tool.

Show me a picture, I'll build a project from that

It is always the right time, to do the right thing.
