There may be no finer book in English on the craft of woodcarving. All beginning and advanced woodcarvers will find it tremendously useful. The highly instructive, encyclopedic text covers all aspects of the craft: what woods to use, how to use tools, how to do different kinds of carving such as incised carving and carving in the round, and much more.
Projects include cabinets, platters, stools, tables, and racks. Working diagrams accompany the text, and there are many photographs of projects and of historical examples. This is an unabridged republication of the first (1911) edition, originally titled Cassell's Wood Carving.
