A Book Review by Jim Barry
Title: Further Useful Tips For Woodcarvers
The diagrams and pictures are varying shades of grey with clear concise drawings (in CAD I think). The book covers the tips and topics of equipment, tools , varying techniques including sanding and finish preparation, shop made clamps and worksholders.
No specific brand name of tool is mentioned or recommended as the ideas and solutions featured were born on the workbench and not the engineer's drawing table. There are some great ideas discovered with only using the basic of tools. Definitely a book that won't spend much time collecting dust on the woodcarver's shelf.
