About this title


Get the right results with classic chisels, gouges and power tools. Photo-enhanced coverage clarifies how tools function, how to make, fit, and remove handles, and how to correct carving-tool faults. Also learn the secrets of cutting success —how to sharpen squarely and straight, and on corners.

Book Description:

Since the first edition was published in 1994, this classic book has established itself as the standard reference on woodcarving. It is now expanded and divided logically into 2 volumes with new colour photography throughout. It should be required reading for all carvers. Volume one deals with the selection, sharpening and maintenance of carving tools. Though the emphasis is on traditional chisels and gouges, the use of power tools is also covered, and ancillary tools such as mallets, abrading tools, knives, punches and scratch stocks are all considered in detail.
