Book Review – Learn to Carve in the Round, by Andrew Thomas
Carving is an area of woodworking which many would like to learn, but don't know where to start. Andrew Thomas's new book is a wonderful introduction to carving, taking you through all the basics of tools, equipment, sharpening, woods, design, grain direction and more. What follows is seven projects specially selected and ordered to develop your skills and techniques, starting with an abstract wave form and finishing with a challenging realistic study of a humpback whale. By the end of this book you'll have carved seven impressive wood sculptures, and the confidence to try your hand at some carved pieces of your own!
