Since I already had the beginner's classics (Barton, Gresham), I thought that this might be nothing new, but I have to admit that I found a lot of interesting material here. A lot of different styles are represented, and that's not the case with most chip carving tutorials.

My aunt is a member in a woodcarving organization. She really enjoys woodcarving and needed some new ideas to experiment with so I got her this book for Christmas. She has carved some really great stuff out of it. Great buy for anybody wanting to enhance woodcarving skills.
