About the Author

"...a fine introduction to the art of woodcarving....Coverage of the basics of trees, wood, and lumber is accomplished quite well. Gentle and practical explanations of the basic tools, safety, carving, and sharpening techniques, in text, line drawings, and photographs, engage the reader. Discussions of more advanced tools and techniques are mentioned...Projects are interesting and require precision and attention, but the results are worth the effort... Well suited to the motivated beginner and useful as a reference point to the occasional but experienced carver. Recommended...." -- Library Journal
