Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0806969156, Paperback)

"...an experienced architectural carver...shows his craft in a step-by
-step manner, explaining tool use, wood choices, and different styles
of carving....stands out because of its great section on tool use....offers
a wealth of both traditional and innovative information; for example, he
employs inexpensive pneumatic chisels...a great technique that this reviewer
has never seen anywhere else. The techniques revealed here could be used by
most woodcarvers, not just those interested in architectural carving....among
the best on the subject and is essential for all woodcraft collections..."--Library Journal.
