R2C/R2B 10" Flat Plain Edge Plate with printed "Sampler" Pattern
This Ready-to-Carve(tm) / Ready-to-Burn 10" Flat Plain Edge Basswood Plate provides many opportunities for Intermediate to Advanced chip carvers to apply their own creativity. Some earlier versions of this "Sampler Plate" were printed with every triangle in the section marked for removal - a true challenge for most carvers, especially novice and beginner level chip carvers. Most, if not all, of the problems stemming from this early design, can be resolved by removing only the chips in each row, that are "pointing" toward the center of the plate, leaving only positive triangles that are pointing toward the outside edge of the plate.
No matter how you approach it, skipping the layout and moving directly into carving or burning a new design has become a very popular concept. I hope you enjoy this challenging but fun piece.
