Very Good Condition, a few chips and a minor repair to front cover, sun faded spine.

'For the serious-minded beginner, the instructional content is well-organised, easy-to-follow and very precise.  The authors begin with the basics: what tools and appliances are necessary, what woods to use, instructions in the actual cutting of wood.  There are chapters on how to translate your ideas into wood, how to design, trace and outline your project. The various methods of practical caving are described: incised, pierced, and chip carving; carving in the round; Gothic carving; styles of carved ornament; etc.  Many specific projects are offered: from the simplest - small boxes, bread plates, chests, chairs and stools - to the more complex - tables, cupboards and cabinets, beds, sideboards, even staircases, or for that matter, almost any item you can imagine in wood.'
