Carving Woodspirits: Beyond the Basics
by Susan L. Hendrix and Paul "PJ" Peery bridges the gap between the beginner and the intermediate woodcarver. When one first learns to carve faces, everything is done simply with only a few steps, but as the beginner practices and eventually "gets it", there is a need for expanded knowledge. There are lots of books for beginners, but the do not take the carver through the transition to intermediate carving. This book gives an expanded way to carve a woodspirit and the reason why an experienced carver may use a certain technique or tool.
