Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Religious subjects are one of the great themes in woodcarving, Judt, a Lutheran pastor and professional carver, here shows how to create relief carvings that celebrate the Christian faith. Readers are shown a variety of techniques so that they can compose their own carvings successfully. To illustrate literally dozens of techniques, Judt demonstrates carving a house-blessing sign in its entirety, using clear text and colorful photos. The sections on workshop design, safety, tools and technique are brief but well written and appropriate for all skill levels. Several patterns are included, case studies describe the inspiration and design process behind four of Judt's creations, and tips for selling one's work help the novice. Many carvers consider their craft to be a special gift, so they will undoubtedly be interested in this type of relief carving. One of the better books on the subject (even those interested in carving secular subject matter will learn something); recommended for all public libraries.

Meet the Author

Bill has been carving for over 27 years, starting with an adult night school course offered by the Winnipeg School Board in 1975. Mostly self-taught, his style of carving is noticeably different from that of carvers elsewhere. He specializes in relief carving (carving pictures in wood), which he does in panels that are two inches thick or less. His favorite themes are those that come out of the Bible and that allow him to combine images with the written biblical text. Almost all of his carvings are done on a commission basis, and are purchased by private families, businesses, churches, corporations, institutions and the like.
