There are lessons and designs for incised and relief carving, as well as notes on selection of suitable woods and their preparation, stains and finishes. The 34 illustrated designs for 34 projects encourage the beginner to slowly and methodically build a sound, practical technique. An excellent volume with superb photographs.
