Description

Carving faces is arguably one of the hardest things to do when woodworking, but it is an essential skill. This guide will help carvers master the fundamentals of faces in either realistic or stylized pieces. Carver and author, Alec LaCasse, teaches beginners how to simplify the complex forms of the human countenance, using the rules of proportion to guide readers through every aspect of the face and then teach them how to put it all together with the correct cutting sequence. This comprehensive book features chapters on basic tools with sections on sharpening, handling and safety; Remember Circles; Eyes, Nose, and Mouth; Carving Hair; and more! With tips, techniques, and exercises galore, this book gives wood carvers everything they need to build their skills and have fun in the process.
