Following the tremendous success of his first book, Tom Wolfe now offers his most popular wood-carving with step-by-step instructions.
Tom attributes the popularity of his Pig Pickin' carving to nostalgia.
This work harkens people back to a simpler time, when the hog harvest was a community event.
Everyone shared in the festivities...and the food. Tom makes the directions clear and each step is illustrated with a photograph. Because the book starts with the bandsawing of the pattern and continues through the painting, even a novice should be able to complete the project.
At the same time, the seasoned carver will benefit from Tom's technique and expertise, and everyone will enjoy Tom's anecdotes about country life.
