An amazing book on Bird Carving

An amazing book on Bird Carving

01-06-2010 09:10 PM by David Craig | 2 comments »

I am rather new to wood carving and power carving in particular. I have a few new dremels and a variety of bits but didn’t really have a good resource for using them.

(My sunflower fairy door is one example) Filled with over 30 projects, if you aren’t a regular purchaser of magazines then t...

This review is from the March 2012 issue of our LJ eMag Fox Chapel Publishing is donating another book for a free draw!
