Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book and it is very complete. If, however, you have a number of Barton's previous books, there is not much new in this one, and that includes the designs shown. So, if you are an experienced chip carver and know Barton's work, I think that you would be disappointed with this book.

As a beginner, this is a great book to establish solid techniques and get an overview of what you accomplish. The patterns and pictures are very detailed. The instructions and explanations are clear and concise. This is a book that I will keep referencing for a long time.

I carve wedding plates, jewelry boxes, and borders on relief carvings. This book provides many samples I can use for my work. It is a super book well worth being a part of any chip carver's arsenal.

I constantly go back to this book after owning it for several years...to get pattern ideas mostly. It has been well worth the purchase price.

Wayne Barton is a master in this book. Things that seem difficult become easy when you can see it being done. Lots of great patterns and ideas. This is a very useful and handy book and can be used by anyone.

This guide is helpful on the face of it. It will be intereting how quickly I absorb the basics and begin to branch out to my own work and designs. The guide looks very useful.

The contents of the book are 85% of material published in former Wayne Barton books. Very little was new. Its a rip off.

I enjoyed the book and am happy to have it. But I enjoyed the DVD more. I recommend them both.
