Descrizione

This practical guide to woodcarving by an accomplished designer and carver not only provides expert tips on such basics as woods and tools, but also explains how to succeed in completing projects in low and high relief.
More than 200 diagrams and photographs accompany clear, concise instructions, enabling novices and veteran woodworkers alike to recreate everything from Gothic tracery to sixteenth-century moldings and lettering. Part One deals with simple carving, gradually advances to slightly modelled detail, and offers expert advice on how to construct rails, chests, a stool, and cradle. Part Two provides examples of more advanced work, with descriptions of Renaissance designs and pierced carvings.
Profusely illustrated with photographs and drawings, this volume will serve as a valuable resource for artists and craftspeople, inspiring creative efforts while offering a wealth of helpful hints and practical information.
