Woodcarving: Tools, Materials & Equipment, Volume 2 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now, you know everything about tools--so what's next? From preparatory drawings and modeling to the many finishes that make completed carvings glow, here's how you go about creating the actual project. The section on woods itself should be required reading: after discussing the differences between hard and soft woods, it guides you through the process of conversion and seasoning, explains how to deal with defects like splitting and knots, and talks about storage and woodworms. Grain, hardness, figure, texture, and durability: recognize these qualities that distinguish a quality piece, and what type of wood works for what type of carving. Follow the fundamentals of "gluing up, " including edge-to-edge, face-to-face, flat, and end-grain joints. See why applying finish is a must (for protection, sealing, enhancing) and examine some simple yet beautiful shellacs, oils, and waxes. Plus working from photographs, making plaster casts, carving safely, and more!

Synopsis:

From preparatory drawings and modeling to the many finishes that make completed carvings glow, heres how you go about creating the actual project. Learn the differences between soft and hard woods, how to deal with defects such as splitting and knots, and discover how grain, hardness, texture and durability figure into your work. Photos guide you along the way.

Synopsis:

This new edition in two volumes, fully revised and expanded with new colour photography throughout will ensure that this work continues to be the standard reference source on the subject. The second volume covers many vitally important woodcarving topics including drawing and modelling, finishing, holding work safely, design of the workplace, using power tools, useful supplementary tools and an invaluable section on wood itself.

Synopsis:

Since the first edition was published in 1994, this classic book has established itself as the standard reference on woodcarving. It is now expanded and divided logically into 2 volumes with new colour photography throughout. It should be required reading for all carvers. Volume one deals with the selection, sharpening and maintenance of carving tools. Though the emphasis is on traditional chisels and gouges, the use of power tools is also covered, and ancillary tools such as mallets, abrading tools, knives, punches and scratch stocks are all considered in detail.

Synopsis:

Fully revised and expanded.
