Synopsis

Woodcarving by Everett Ellenwood

Introduce children to a hobby that lasts a lifetime - woodcarving. With just a few basic tools, scrap wood and the safety techniques outlined in this fun project book, children will be on their way to creating keepsakes or crafting hand-carved gifts for their family. First, they'll learn all about wood; the anatomy of a tree, how to choose the best wood for carving and where to find 'free' wood in nature. Woodcarving tools and supplies are covered in great depth, with each tool's use explained and illustrated with a step-by-step practice exercise, which builds skill and confidence in young readers. Carving techniques start with the safest and most basic tools and work up to more advanced ones. In fact, the first practice project ensures a safe experience, as it shows kids how to carve a boat out of a bar of soap, using just a plastic disposable knife! This book includes 7 projects for carving a fun wooden whistle; a croaking musical frog, a relief-carved eagle head, a snowman ornament and more!
