NEW! Ready-to-Carve(tm) / Ready-to-Burn(tm) 12" Beaded Edge "Mashburn Mashup" Flat Plate
I'm thrilled, beyond words, to finally introduce this new and unique, Ready-to-Carve(tm) / Ready-to-Burn(tm) 12" Flat Beaded Edge "Mashburn Mashup" Basswood Plate. First, I want to tell you how it came to be ........
My good friend Harry Mashburn sent me an 8” plate with a beautiful design drawn on it - intended for “Ukrainian style” Chip Carving. I gave it a try, but failed miserably. But, with his permission, I enlarged the original pattern slightly (now the geometric center portion), added the Dogwood petals and leaf design around the "rim", and dubbed it the “Mashburn Mashup”! It’s now fully ready to carve in the fashion that we mere mortals go about Chip Carving - what I continue to call Traditional Chip Carving. In other words, this pattern is intended to be carved in the same way you would be carving any of the other items on this Website. Of course, the qualifiers of experience level, skill level, and confidence still apply.
Please contact me by phone (828-226-6040) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions or suggestions you might have.
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, project.
