Book Description

Carve and bring to life wonderful, old-world people in the Scandinavian "flat plane" style of carving. Clear directions and step-by-step photographs show you exactly how to make a few simple, well-placed cuts, leaving large, flat planes intact on the wood-carved figure, for an effect rich with folk-art charm. Plus, you'll get a history of Scandinavian woodcarving and photographs and drawings of decorative pieces.
