« Part 2: Lettering & Sign Carving Workbook by Betty Padden Part 3 of LJ Book Draws series Part 4: Cabinet Construction »

This book review is from the January 2013 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag

Fox Chapel Publishing is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details)
Relief Carving Projects & Techniques

37 projects: not only inspiration but also filled with how-to techniques and styles. Although I am not a carver, I had lots of ideas running through my head as I looked through the various projects included. The technique of Scandinavian Kolrosing (line carving), in particular, caught my eye… that and the fairy door, of course.

The projects range from simple, (I think I might be able to manage one or two) to rather complex (the deep-relief mantel looks very challenging). There are signs, clocks, stamps, trivets, and other decor items, including the decorative sleigh.

I give the book two thumbs up. And I might, now, just have to make another fairy door!
