Twenty Decorative Carving Projects in Period Styles

This wonderful collection of inspirational period carving projects ranges from the quick and simple to the long and complex, so caters for hobby carvers of all abilities. The new carver can start with the simplest project and, over a period of time, work through to the intermediate and advanced levels, while experienced carvers will find pieces to challenge and engage them. Each project is designed to capture the spirit and style of a particular period throughout history and at the end of each project readers will have developed new skills, gained an understanding of another style, and created a carving to proudly display in their home. Projects each have an introduction, setting it in historical context, a tracing pattern, an inspirational picture of the finished carving and comprehensive, easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions and photographs.
