Every power tool and technique necessary for capturing the animal
kingdom in wood is presented in this thorough and engaging volume.
Frank C. Russell provides concise instructions and never-before
demonstrated techniques and carving sequences for transforming a block
of wood into a life-like animal. With 150 full-color photographs,
every step is illustrated. Following the philosophy that you can only
carve what you know, photographs of living animals accompany each
carving sequence. Twelve project plans are provided as well. Plans for
a bear, bobcat, bison, elephant, fox, giraffe, horse, rabbit,
squirrel, tiger, whitetail deer and wolf provide the carver with ample
opportunity to apply newly discovered techniques. Color reference
photographs accompany the projects. This book will bring enjoyment and
challenges to all carvers, novice and professional alike. It will also
guide carvers easily and concisely to finished works of art of which
they may be proud.
