Carving Woodspirits: The Basics 64-1-9
64-1-9 Carving Woodspirits: The Basics by Susan L Hendrix and Paul "PJ" Peery
After the success of their first book Carving Woodspirits: Beyond The Basics, Susan and Paul decided to write a book for the person just getting into carving wood spirits. The Basics was written with the beginner in mind. While the instructions are useful for carvers of any level, this would be a great first book for someone interested in learning to carve a face. Instructions for beginners include safety, sharpening, tool selection, wood, working with wood grain and finishing are all discussed. This is truly a step by step, no steps are missing!
