From the Publisher
Even those who have never picked up a carving tool will quickly learn to create charming pieces with Halloween Woodcarving, written by professional carver and author Cyndi Joslyn. Clear, step-by-step instructions give readers everything they need to get started, including how to use and maintain basic carving tools such as gouges, knives, and chisels. Choosing the best wood for carving is covered, and beginners also learn how to easily transfer carving patterns and make basic woodcarving cuts. A final chapter on painting and finishing shows how to add creativity and color to your carvings.

Ten fun projects include a cat in pumpkins, mummy, ghost trick-or-treater, witch, beware sign, and other halloween ornaments. Each project includes full color photography of the finished pieces, a materials list, a detailed pattern and a color chart.

Straight from the Cyndi Joslyn stable comes this delightful step-by-step guide in celebration of the annual ghoulish festival.
