A beginner's guide from the world's most renowned chip carver! Wayne Barton-author of Chip Carving and Art of Chip Carving-presents what is unquestionably the finest guidance ever for the novice. He has been the driving force behind the craft's resurgence and his technical knowledge, design skills and ability to instruct remain unequalled. One by one, with the aid of colour photographs, he covers tools and materials, the best woods, holding and sharpening chip carving knives and laying out and transferring patterns. Borders, grids, rosettes, free-form design, positive image design and lettering all receive separate, in-depth chapters, as does Barton's special, time-tested hints.
