Pye, Chris


Sound, technical advice is the first order of business in this collection of several excellent articles and 24 projects from "Woodcarving" magazine. Far from being just a selection of patterns, this guide reviews the fundamentals of the craft and is addressed to carvers of all skill levels. Special attention is paid to the finicky V-tool, which suffers from a reputation for being difficult to use, and carvers are also instructed on how to sharpen tools properly, choose the perfect wood, apply a variety of finishes, and work with gold leaf. The projects include pineapple finials, decorative moldings, and signs with carved lettering; challenging advanced work is to be found in plans for an eagle-decorated lectern and a seated Buddha. Color photos illustrate the step-by-step directions for all projects, and sidebars offer tips for success.Pye, Chris is the author of 'Wood Carving', published 2008 under ISBN 9781565233584 and ISBN 1565233581.
