    I sure wish all the lost treasure trove of photos was still available. I'd probably spend hours going through old threads to glut on the scope of the work once presented here. Thanks Phil for reposting some of the lost bounty.

    Thanks for the update, Phil. I remembered the original thread from 2013; it's good to have the new pics to salvage it from the vandals who hacked us.

    Here are some photos that illustrate this discussion prior to the hacking that broke the link to the original photos. This project, "Chip Carved Illusion" demonstrated 1) that a powerful visual illusion can be created in a chip carving, 2) that chip carving can be done with a fishtail gouge, 3) chip carvings should NOT be sanded to remove pattern lines. The original design is by Emma Perlaky in the mychipcarving.com newletter.

    Phil I think it turned out perfect. We always learn a little each time we do a project. Some great techniques and lessons you shared here.
    Thanks

    I removed some of the stain in the transition area. It's now about ready for a final clear coat. Lessons learned: 1. Chip carving can be done with a fishtail gouge. 2. Never sandpaper a chip carving to remove pattern lines 3. Don't use varied tones of stain on a chip carving.

    A treat to the eye and a wonder to a wanna-be carver...
