Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the beginner series that covers every area in woodworking, the best starter information you will ever find! Take the most in-depth, start-from-scratch course to wood carving available. With gentle guidance from two renowned crafts-people and bestselling authors, you'll see how to use the basic tools (gauges, knives, and mallets), and how to keep them in peak condition.

Become familiar with various types of wood and their characteristics — an A-to-Z guide makes it so easy. Then whittle, incise, chip, and carve your way to wonderful works all your own. Among the fabulous projects that allow you to show off your newfound skills are a rustic stool, a wild fowl decoy, and a ball-in-a-cage puzzle.
