This second volume covers many subjects of vital importance to the woodcarver, from the preparatory work of drawing and modelling to the many different finishes which can be applied to the completed carving. Methods of holding the work safely are described in detail, with plans for several useful appliances which readers can make for themselves. There is also a section on wood itself, and how to make the most of its many contradictory qualities.
