“The purpose of this book is to equip you with everything you need to know to become a skilled chip carver . . . I’ve worked hard to make this book a distillation of how and what I teach in person. In it you will find advice on what tools and materials you need to get started, instruction on proper, safe carving technique, skill-building exercises, and carving projects ranging from simple and easy, to complex and challenging. My goal was to make the book the next best thing to learning in person, and if I have achieved that goal even to a small degree I see no reason not to expect similar results for you at home as I would if you attended one of my classes.” - Daniel Clay

This book is an easy to follow, step-by-step guide to one of the world's most ancient and widely practised forms of woodcarving.

Whether you are a beginner or experienced craftsperson, you can learn to use simple, inexpensive tools and techniques to carve striking decorative designs in wood. Chip carving is an especially good introduction to working wood for the inexperienced because of its low cost-of-entry, and because it puts the most essential concepts of woodworking front and centre: safety, precision, and how understanding the nature of the wood itself leads to successful results.

This guide is loaded with the technical information you need to start chip carving - the few tools you need and how to sharpen them, how to select and prepare wood for carving, how to transfer carving patterns, how to carve safely and precisely, and how to read and understand wood grain. Clay also teaches the basics of good carving technique, provides step-by-step guidance through two practice boards to build your skills, and then walks you through ten beginner projects that allow you to put your skills to use.
