This handbook guides beginners and those who want to expand their repertoire through 15 Santa carvings based on prototypes from around the globe. Two step-by-step projects with close-up photography and detailed captions lead carvers through choosing tools and material, patterns, transferring designs, executing basic cuts, carving, and painting full-bodied Santas. Easy-to-follow patterns accompanied by photographs with views from different angles can be used to create an additional 13 Santas. Historical notes on the origins of the Santas and an overview of wood, tools, and safety are included.
