From the Publisher
Part of The Best of Woodcarving Illustrated series, this volume collects 37 projects and patterns from Woodcarving Illustrated magazine. Initial chapters explain techniques for measuring carving levels, gluing up panels, using power tools and woodburning, and translating a two-dimensional pattern into three dimensions, followed by instructions for projects for home decor and gifts like lettering, signs and cards, a bulldog bulletin board, a sunflower clock, a deep-relief mantel, kitchen trivets, a snowman collector's plate, quilt squares, a floral sled, and a patriotic flag egg. Included are photos of the finished product and each step in the process, lists of materials and tools needed, and patterns.

Wow! Thirty-seven beautiful patterns and projects are packed into these 144 pages. Not only that, but there is expert advice and techniques to go along with it. The authors show you how to hand carve or power-carve all of these great projects. Carve a pin tail duck or a lighthouse, a majestic stag or even just a simple apple, you will love the details found here. How about an elaborately gilded address sign or a beautiful floral clock all carved in relief. This is an excellent book for the beginner and the expert.
