This book is excellent for a beginner, speaking as a beginner. I have carved Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus without any complications. Illustrations are perfect along with well written instructions. If you desire to carve a nativity set but shy away due to the appeared difficulty, this is book will remove any hesitations. Flat plane carving does not have quite a much detail, but is similar to the Willow Tree style of carving. This will definitly allow you to produce a quality nativity set that can become a family heirloom.

As a new carver, I found this book to be very thorough with detailed pictures and instructions. Mary was the first piece described and each subsequent piece builds on the skills learned from the first. Highly recommended and a great introduction to flat plane carving. I would recommend Harley Refsal's books as follow-ons should you enjoy the flat plane style.
