This handsome book, by talented wordworker and teacher Chris Pye, provides background and introduction to two truly disparate, yet entirely complementary, crafts: carving and turning. Discover how simple decorative marks, through to advanced carving and shaping techniques, can enhance your turned objects and add an element of artistry. Begin with a beautiful sun bowl and a wheat-ear breadboard. Make a vase using low relief, or a dolphin mirror with pierced relief and practice shaping skills while working on a mortar and pestle. 12 projects, arranged by difficulty, introduce more and more skills and provide progressive lessons in technique; all accompanied with friendly text, illustrations and photographs. Watch as both your woodworking pleasure and scope grow before your eyes! AUTHOR: Chris Pye has been a professional woodcarver for more than 25 years. His work is done mainly to commission, with clients including HRH the Prince of Wales and ranges from architectural mouldings to figure carving, furniture to lettering and bedheads to fireplaces. His previous books for GMC Publications include Woodcarving: Projects and Techniques (9781861085078).
