by Chris Pye
Here are 10 challenging, step-by-step projects, including a carving modelled from the well-known drawing, Hands, by Albrecht Dürer, two versions of the Green Man (part human head, part foliage) from ancient church façades, and a modern leaping frog.
Pye also describes construction of three carving benches — a heavy, full-sized bench with a tilting top, a folding, portable deckchair stand for small relief panels, and a platform that can raise, lower and rotate. While he gives details of construction, the drawings are not dimensioned, because each carver will want to build the benches to suit his or her needs.
