Editorial Reviews

About the Author

I was raised on a dairy farm in southern Idaho and have retained to this day an intense hatred for dairy cows and all other livestock to a lesser degree.

The twice a day juicing of those sensless beasts left an indelible mark on me. I decided long ago, never again.

I haven't. And I won't.

The first attempt at writing was at the Minnesota State Fair while attempting to sell wood sculptures of historic western faces. The folks there held no appreciation for cowboys and Indians so the two week fair was spent in the start of a book on the art of carving faces. An immediate success. Sold thousands almost before a blink. the next book on relief carving has been almost as successful. Both continue to sell well. Even after winning several awards for wood sculpture a slow burnout destroyed any desire to continue. The love of woodworking, however, turned my attention to the design and construction of outdoor furniture. With a new classic look.

Tired of the age-old, mundane style of outdoor furniture a determination arose to produce swings, picnic tables, chairs, gliders, lounges and others with sleek, flowing lines yet strong and durable. Proud of the outcome a decision was made to share the knowlege with others by writing how-to books. Four are available with more to come. Try them all. You'll have a lot of fun.

I liked this book so much I ordered another for a friend. Pictures are clear and detailed. I am a beginner carver and I am sure I will be able to carve the cowboy, indian or mountain man without a lot of trouble. There is even a section for carving a feather and a pipe.

the instructions are basic yet enough to be able to create that wonderful face from the past. Great for beginners.
