This collection of 24 skill-building projects from Woodcarving Illustrated can be completed quickly with only a few tools and readily available materials. The book begins with basic cuts, safety, and sharpening techniques, and explains how to select a knife from the many available choices.
The projects that follow include toys, ornaments and caricatures, ranging from an easy owl and a walking stick to a more complex musical frog and a fishing lure - each carved from a twig or block of wood. Each includes step-by-step instructions, close-up photos and helpful tips. Enjoyable weekend projects to help beginner and intermediate whittlers gain experience and confidence.
