Wood Carving Book. How to Carve Animals

This book grows out of many requests we have received for animal carving books in general, and for Tom Wolfe animals in particular. His raccoons and hounds have graced the pages of his previous books. His bears, in their original form and as reproductions, have found their way into the hearts of people across the nation.

Beginning with a plain block of bass wood or white pine, Tom creates a menagerie of characters. Bunnies and bears are the epitome of "cuddly," and are a favorite of children and adults alike.

These projects are perfect for the person who carves for relaxation. After bandsawing the patterns, they can be completed with the simplest of tools—a knife, a gouge, a veiner, and nailset. Tom helps the less experienced reader with the basic skills required for carving. Those who are more experienced will value a few of the secrets and shortcuts he has learned over the years. The projects can be adapted so that your bear or bunny will take on a different character through its size, position, and/or color. Your imagination is all that is necessary to make the changes.

Soft cover, 1990, Schiffer Publishing, 64 pages.

This used book is in very good condition.
