How to Carve a chain yourselfThis is a sketch of one way a chain may be laid out.You may have to study it for a bit before it makes sense. The large links and single ball in the long cage makes this a fairly simple to carve whimsey.
Start with a piece of wood that's relatively square and is already as long as the chain that you wish to carve. You could also use a 2x2 from the lumberyard, but pine wood splits easier than basswood and this will be frustrating until you get more advanced at wood carving art. Cut a notch into the length of the wood on each corner of the wood so that the wood's profile becomes a cross instead of a square.
Bandage your wounds when you cut yourself, because chances are, you'll cut yourself at some point. This is a great project for learning to use a pocket knife correctly, but for younger wood workers, adult supervision is recommended. Basswood is recommended and you can get this fairly easily at lots of woodworking supply stores. You could use the chain as a decoration, a piece of jewelry or perhaps as a baby or pet toy.
