Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This comprehensive introduction to every essential tool, skill, technique, and style is all that you need to become a truly outstanding craftsman. Start with the basics of chip carving: carved moldings, foliage, and linenfold. Then you carve commonplace objects in high relief--from carving bowls to animals in the round to carving and stylizing the human figure. Finally you create your own abstracts and detailed incised lettering. 192 pages (all in color), 8 1/4 x 11.
