Details

This book is probably the first of its kind: a thorough primer for woodcarvers in the vocabulary of classical ornament and the practical skills needed to carve it. Classical detail is all around us- in building, joinery, furniture and decorative restorers as well as carvers. Methods of holding and setting out the work are discussed in detail, and the carving process is thoroughly illustrated with step-by-step photographs. A selection of projects shows how the various elements can be combined to make such items as mantelpieces, gateposts, and picture frames. Softcover, 160 pages, ISBN: 978-1-86108-158-2.
