Carving Realistic Animals with Power, Paperback Book


Every power tool and technique necessary for capturing the animal kingdom in wood is presented in this thorough and engaging volume.

Frank C. Russell provides concise instructions and never-before demonstrated techniques and carving sequences for transforming a block of wood into a life-like animal.

With 150 full-color photographs, every step is illustrated.

Following the philosophy that you can only carve what you know, photographs of living animals accompany each carving sequence. Twelve project plans are provided as well. Plans for a bear, bobcat, bison, elephant, fox, giraffe, horse, rabbit, squirrel, tiger, whitetail deer and wolf provide the carver with ample opportunity to apply newly discovered techniques.

Color reference photographs accompany the projects. This book will bring enjoyment and challenges to all carvers, novice and professional alike.

It will also guide carvers easily and concisely to finished works of art of which they may be proud.
