Teach Yourself Woodcarving free pdf Built around ten beautifully photographed animal woodcarving projects, Teach Yourself Woodcarving combines basic information for beginners with advanced techniques that will appeal to seasoned carvers.

Following these examples, the reader can learn to about complex in-the-round forms, shallow stylised relief carving, roughing-out with a small chainsaw, burning timber to bring out the pattern of the grain, and much much more.
