This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEA curriculum. Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Roundwood Working.

This little woodworking project has no practical value, but is a great little conversation piece. Using them for a keychain is not unheard of if you attach a ring to the item. It’s all about thinking through what you’re doing and making sure to keep everything even and precise. Even though the finished piece may not hold practical value, it still helps hone your skills.

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
Carve a series of at least 3 links.
Must be carved from a single piece of wood.
Use only manual hand tools.

To document and become certified for this BB provide photos or video (less than 2 minutes) showing the following:
- Show the wood and tools you will use
- Show the partially completed chain, preferably prior to all 3 links being freed
- Show the finished chain in a way that makes it clear they are unattached to one another
machines help you to do more, but experience less. Experience this tiny ad:
