A well-conceived introduction to woodcarving, this book teaches the essentials, with emphasis on safety and fun.

Beginner carvers will learn how to properly use carving knives through a series of exercises to develop skill and dexterity. Photographs clearly illustrate how to make eight fundamental cuts, transfer patterns, measure and mark, drill holes, saw shapes, sand and finish wood, and sharpen and care for tools.

Information about wood, tools and supplies is provided, as well as materials lists and step by-step photographic instructions for 11 carving projects, including a soap boat, snowman ornament, whistle, arrowhead, name plaque, a relief carving of an eagle head and a musical frog.

Softcover, 8 1/2" × 11", 135 pages, revised 2013.
