Wooden pins make wonderful handmade gifts and can be carved in a minimum of space with small equipment. Here, accomplished woodcarver and teacher Mary Finn guides readers through the creation of five colorful designs: a sunflower, cardinal, bunny, Santa, and rose. Mary suggests ideas for developing pin designs as well as methods for creating blanks that can be used many times. Step-by-step instructions and color photography present the process of carving the blank, adding texture and other details, painting, finishing, and attaching a pin to the back. Whether you want a dainty pin for your best friend, a funky pin for your little sister, or a bolo for your favorite uncle, this book will provide the tips and techniques for creating just the right look.
