Learn the basics of woodcarving with more than 200 how-to illustrations and 10 patterns from Mary Duke Guldan, a longtime columnist for the National Wood Carvers Association and Chip Chats magazine. Inside, you'll discover lifelike dimensions with top, side, back, and front views; cutaway drawings that illustrate the carving at various levels; detailed shading techniques; wood grain direction and the ability to use common woods as they allow you to build up a piece from 1" wood for stability.

Complete Beginner's Woodcarving Workbook gives you the information you need on tools and wood as you follow the simple instructions. You can even start out with an inexpensive craft knife and add tools as your skills and interest increase. With each clearly illustrated step, you'll gain confidence as you use this workbook to master both relief carving and carving in the round.
