Standing Santas are a great beginner
project. Only three tools are used: a
carving knife, a detail knife, and a
small gouge. The cuts are very basic, but
when they are combined, an adorable
hand-carved holiday project is the result.
Remember, all the photos are from the
carver’s perspective. Make your hands
look and do what the hands in the photo
are doing and you’re on your way.
Get your feet wet by carving the
Traditional Santa on the following pages.
