Since the first edition was published in 1994, this classic book has established itself as the standard reference on woodcarving. It is now expanded and divided logically into 2 volumes with new colour photography throughout. It should be required reading for all carvers. Volume one deals with the selection, sharpening and maintenance of carving tools. Though the emphasis is on traditional chisels and gouges, the use of power tools is also covered, and ancillary tools such as mallets, abrading tools, knives, punches and scratch stocks are all considered in detail.About the Author:
Chris Pye has been a professional carver for more than 20 years and writes extensively on the subject. His previous books include Lettercarving in Wood, Relief Carving in Wood and Elements of Woodcarving.
