Woodcarving BasicsUnknown - 1996
Two of the world's best-selling authors on woodcarving for the first time have created an introduction to the craft with emphasis on the woodcarver's tools: choosing your basic set, understanding the special capacities of each knife, knowing the rich tradition behind each type of blade and handle, the various ways of keeping them sharp and well maintained, and, of course, instructions on how to get the results you want. Over 150 photos and nearly 300 illustrations fill every chapter with inspirational examples of the woodcarver's art, along with the word-and-picture setups that show you what to do at every step.
