Using projects to demonstrate the various aspects and different styles of carving to the newcomer, this step-by-step guide shows how to approach the craft without the assistance of large machinery. Each project is specifically chosen to introduce new techniques. Projects are small, useful, fun to carve, and can be completed in a few days or over a weekend. Major techniques such as carving in the round, relief carving, knife work, and working with burrs and rasps are covered. The projects presented help beginning woodworkers to learn particular carving techniques that they can then employ on more complex projects.
