How to carve a wooden Indian. Filled with step-by-step photos and instructions.

From the Introduction: Although I had been toying with the idea myself for some time, I did not yet feel ready for the attempt. There were some things in my own mind I felt were not sufficiently developed yet.

Well, three years later, I realize that the questions are never completely answered. Each step in our development as an artist is merely a key that unlocks the door to a room full of deeper mysteries and secrets. One can only strive to do the best he is capable of at any one time in his life.

Progress in the development of one's artistic prowess, unfortunately, is not a gradual ascent, but rather a series of levels or steps, with each preceding level taking longer and becoming more difficult to obtain. It is at these later stages of development that many individuals falter, as they lack the discipline to sustain them as they assimilate more knowledge and ideas from others into a viable resource which can be physically impressed upon a suitable medium with enough vigor and emotion to make a visual impression on others. Such knowledge comes from studying and interpreting the work of others. We, as individuals, can progress only so far on our own. All of the great masters of the past studied under others. They admired and learned from their contemporaries.

This is much the way it came to me-A little at a time. I sought out and took classes with people, who in my opinion, were tops in their field. From this slowly evolved a style of carving that showed what I was trying to say. This, too, I hope should be your goal. Not to mimic or duplicate what someone you admire has done, but rather incorporate segments of their work into something that is uniquely yours.
