February 11, 2021 – Chip Carving Essentials by Marty Leenhouts

Marty Leenhouts is an teacher of chip carving and has a website devoted to the instruction of chipcarving at

In our time together I’ll show you why chip carving is very affordable, easy to learn and master and is portable so you can take your carving wherever you want. 
I’ll show you the basic technique and demonstrate how it’s done. There will be time for questions as well. 

“My goal for instruction is to take you wherever you’re at in your chip carving and move you forward, one step at a time. The fundamentals are crucial as you first get started. More advanced techniques are helpful as you seek smoother cuts, avoid chip out and have the desire to carve more complicated patterns that include positive image designs, letters and numbers, and multi-level chips.  My approach to life and chip carving is this, “There’s always something new to learn”

This philosophy is something I apply to my own chip carving and to this business. As I learn new things I’m always glad to share them with you.”
