The eight projects for beginning and intermediate carvers range from a low-relief rose plaque to a fully three-dimensional duck decoy and include a sea-motif mirror frame, a game board, and decorative wall pieces. Hand-lettered directions are accompanied by numerous line drawings. One wishes that a few photographs showing hands guiding the carving tools had been included. There is introductory material on gluing, making a compass to use in layout, and a carving knife designed by McCarthy, but the authors note that basic information on carving tools, woods, and finishes is included in their earlier book (1983). For larger crafts collections. W. T. Johnston, Coastal Plain Regional Lib., Tifton, Ga.
