Extract from back cover of book:

Tom Wolfe goes back to basics. With easy to follow, step-by-step instructions, Tom helps the novice carver bring life to a block of wood. With a single knife Tom carves a reclining country figure and teaches the basic methods of woodcarving. Each cut is illustrated with a full-color photograph, an important visual aid to learning this fun craft. These projects show everything you need to create a nice piece of art.

About the Author: Tom Wolfe is a native of West Virginia who lives and works at his Mountain Meadow Studio in West Jefferson, North Carolina. He began carving at the age of twelve and has become one of America's most recognized and respected carvers. The author of seventeen books for carvers, he has helped thousands of people develop their skills.
