Wonderful Wooden Work - Inception chair (1)

Monday 3 March 2014


In Issue 133 of Woodcarving, learn how to carve a stylised owl with Andrew Thomas, a teddy bear with Peter Clothier and if you're feeling really ambitious, a medieval Gothic boss by Steve Bisco. Chris Pye shows you how to make a decorative ribbon and bow project, and we have an extract from the legendary Ian Norbury's book, where he shows you how to carve a 'classic European' woman's face. Mike Wood teaches you to carve and paint a red-legged partridge, and finally, Anthony Bailey makes a wall-mounted carving tool rack, to keep all your kit in order.

Michael Painter looks at parting with the 'V' tool, and we take a close look at Illinois carver Josh Guge. Ben Hawthorne takes his grandson for a walk in the woods for some first-hand inspiration, and in the Art of Carving, we look at a piece by Dr Mark Doolittle.

We've tested two multi-purpose sanders from Makita, and on top of that, we've got the Carver's Toolbag, where we give a roundup of all the latest tools and products specially selected to meet your carving needs - plus news from the BWA and BDWCA and some dates for your diaries. Another great issue, so don't miss out on yours!
