In Hand Carving Your Own Walking Stick, award-winning woodcarver
David Stehly raises carving to a true art form, as he walks the reader
through the process of making artisan-quality sticks, staffs, and canes
that are as functional as they are beautiful.

An intricate hand-carved Noah’s Ark is a true folk art classic, and
professional wood carver Betty Padden makes it easy in Carving &
Painting Noah’s Ark
. Betty reveals her original layered techniques for
transforming this major project into simpler, doable carvings, while
adding a touch of whimsy along the way.

Speaking of original techniques, pyrography artist Jo Schwartz has
developed a dazzling method for turning photographs into custom
portraits. She shows how to use her smooth shading technique to
create beautiful portraits that resemble old, sepia-colored photos in
Woodburning Realistic People.

Author and woodworking instructor Scott Wynn teaches how to
choose, set up, maintain, and master the basic variations of an
indispensable hand tool in Getting Started with Handplanes. Scott’s
book provides an essential guide for every modern woodworker who is
interested in using this valuable time-honored tool.

It has been 20 years since we launched Woodcarving Illustrated,
the publication that has grown to be the world’s largest magazine
dedicated to the art and craft of woodcarving. I’m proud of the role
that we continue to play in sharing the knowledge of today’s leading
carvers with both beginning and advanced enthusiasts. I’m especially
gratified by our efforts to involve a new generation of carvers, as we
reach out to them digitally through the web and social media.

Sincerely,
Alan Giagnocavo
