This book differs from most other books by showing other people's mistakes. It is very informative for the beginning woodcarver. It goes into all the details of using woodcarving tools correctly. Provided are details on sharpening and the proper way to handle your tools comfortably. You'll also find great detail on wood characteristics and which woods are better than others for carving.
