From the Back Cover:

Step-By-Step Instructions & Patterns for 40 Flat-Plane Carving Projects Harley Refsal- an internationally recognized carver who has been decorated by the King of Norway for his contributions to Norwegian culture-shows you how to create many of your own Scandinavian style, flat-plane carvings. With Refsal's step-by-step instructions-plus a knife and a gouge or two-you will learn to bring to life a traditional figure and a Dalecarlian horse. In addition, more than 40 other figure patterns-from a school teacher to a bird watcher and a leprechaun to a rooster-are included. Clear directions, front and side-view patterns, and step-by-step photographs show you exactly how to make a few simple, well-placed cuts, leaving large flat planes intact on the wood-carved figure. You will be delighted with the way figures come to life with a charming, folk-art personality.
