From the Back Cover:

There is a school of mathematical art that explores the frontiers of what is possible in a given space, and author Bjarne Jespersen is a master of this art. In Woodcarving Magic, he will show you how to uncover the structure of space by looking inside pieces of wood and carving away anything that doesn't match your vision. With more than 25 designs for carving "tricky objects" with connected parts that are loose, yet cannot be taken apart, you'll learn to craft astonishing linked cages, knotted rings, and more. You'll learn how to get started with advice on choosing wood, selecting tools, and preparing blanks. Woodcarving Magic has projects for both the beginner and the experienced carver, featuring step-by-step diagrams and detailed instructions that break down the process into achievable steps. Those with engineering minds will enjoy the author's explanations of his creative geometric methods. Those with mathematical minds will marvel at how beautifully art and math come together. And those who enjoy woodcarving will find challenges to strengthen their skills and will appreciate the novel forms presented.

About the Author:

Bjarne Jespersen is an internationally-known woodcarver and sculptor with a passion for mathmatics and geometry. He uses creative geometry to give new life to "magic woodcarving" - carving a piece of wood into sections that are loose but cannot be separated.
