Intro to Woodcarving Gift set
Thinking of getting into carving? This is an ideal set for you or to give as a present. It contains 5 tools, a block of Lime and instructions to get you on your way.
Chris Pye's Woodcarving Course & Reference Manual is akin to having a one-on-one course with a master carver.
You'll learn what to look for in a workbench, the importance of commissioning your carving tools-there's more to it than just sharpening!-and how to make exacting cuts and execute a variety of techniques.
Like any good instructor, Pye includes practice exercises to make you comfortable with the tools and techniques so you can build your skills and carve with confidence.
Pye's conversational teaching style will encourage you as you follow the step-by-step instructions and work on a number of motifs, as well as projects for low, high, and pierced relief, and in-the-round. With the help of Chris Pye, you'll learn to carve: - Four types of molding - A beautiful koi project in three levels of relief carving - A realistic baseball cap in-the-round - A charming wren in-the-round
