This review is from: The Big Book of Whittling and Woodcarving (Paperback) I thought that a book with this title would have a
significant beginners section for a starting whittler, but it doesn't. The book is primarily a pattern book with some hints for
working the wood and possibly a short history for pattern classifications. A redeeming factor is the patterns have a front and side
shot. Complicated patterns, such as a dutch shoe will have exploded details. A nice book if your looking for what to do next. Not
a good learning book for beginners. Bill Hampton (firstname.lastname@example.org)

This review is from: The Big Book of Whittling and Woodcarving (Paperback) I was disappointed in this book because I was
hoping this would provide tips for someone with absolutely no experience to get started on. It doesn't do that. Basically, it has a
lot of different patterns to use once you are already carving. If that's what you're looking for, it might be a good book for you.

someone like me, who has been carving small figural objects (mostly dolls) for a couple of years, this book is a dream come
true. Carving styles from all over the world are featured, and techniques for the various styles are discussed. There are small
sketches of hundreds of different motifs and items to inspire and inform. I would not strictly call them patterns, as other
reviewers have, but all could be made into patterns with any printer that can blow up small sketches.I liked the variety shown.
Whether you like bas relief carving, whittled figures, doll house furniture, or toys like jumping jacks, you can find them here.As
other reviewers have noted, this may not be the best choice for a book to instruct the complete novice, nor did I get the
impression ( as others have) that this is the purpose of it. The photos on the front of the book do not depict beginning projects,
but intermediate ones, for...
