Chris Pye's Woodcarving Course & Reference Manual: A Beginner's Guide to Traditional Techniques

By Chris Pye


The first step into a new craft can be overwhelming: Where to start? What tools to buy? What projects to begin with? Thanks to author and internationally acclaimed woodcarver Chris Pye, this guide is filled with everything a beginning woodcarver needs to know.


Chris Pye's Woodcarving Course & Reference Manual is akin to having a one-on-one course with a master carver. You'll learn what to look for in a workbench, the importance of commissioning your carving tools-there's more to it than just sharpening!-and how to make exacting cuts and execute a variety of techniques.


Like any good instructor, Pye includes practice exercises to make you comfortable with the tools and techniques so you can build your skills and carve with confidence. Pye's conversational teaching style will encourage you as you follow the step-by-step instructions and work on a number of motifs, as well as projects for low, high, and pierced relief, and in-the-round.


With the help of Chris Pye, you'll learn to carve:

  • Four types of molding
  • A beautiful koi project in three levels of relief carving
  • A realistic baseball cap in-the-round
  • A charming wren in-the-round
  • California Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 information.
