The NEW 2018 WOODWORKING Books & Magazines

Posted: 2018/03/14   Source: Fox Chapel Publishing

Dear Customer:
I hope that you’ll enjoy this latest catalog from Fox Chapel Publishing. It’s focused entirely on woodworking books—from woodcarving, whittling, scroll sawing, and turning, to pyrography, toy making, furniture making, cabinetry, and more. Please take your time to page through this catalog and check out our latest woodworking titles. You’ll find hundreds of terrific books like these, perfect for you and your customers:

Stephen and Diane Fitzberger from Abba Woodworks have written a new book that we know is going to be a top seller. In Wood Pallet DIY Projects (page 32) these experienced urban woodworkers show how to upcycle salvaged skids to create useful products for the home and community. Twenty step-by-step projects include raised garden beds, bookshelves, benches, water barrel stands, small compost bins, and more.

Author and woodworking instructor Scott Wynn is back with two essential new hand tool references. Complete Guide to Wood Joinery (page 38), a comprehensive manual on hand-cut joinery, shows how to create almost any furniture joint using hand planes, while Traditional Wooden Handplanes (page 39) shows hand tool enthusiasts how to restore, make, modify and use traditional wood handplanes.

Three of our most popular woodworking books, now in handsome new hardcover gift editions, will provide perfect presents for any woodworking enthusiast. Look for two bestselling whittling books in new gift editions—Little Book of Whittling and VictorinoxSwiss Army Knife  Book—on page 6, as well as a new gift edition of the woodburning classic Pyrography Basics on page 22. Speaking of woodburning, learning pyrography has never been easier with Landscape Pyrography Techniques & Projects (page 22) from the talented and prolific artist Lora S. Irish. Lora reveals  her easy-to-learn methods for working in layers to obtain stunning results, with four complete practice projects and a step-by-step project for a rustic Mail Pouch Tobacco-style barn.

Also new from Lora S. Irish, Finishing Techniques for Wood Crafters (page 35) offers a truly comprehensive compendium of finishing techniques for all woodcrafters. This practical guide shows how to create flawless finishes every time, with step-by-step photos of beautiful acrylic paint techniques and oil staining/antiquing methods for any creative wood project.

Introducing Happy Fox, A New Children’s Book Imprint By Fox Chapel Publishing

Posted: 2018/02/15

East Petersburg, PA — Fox Chapel Publishing is pleased to announce a new imprint, Happy Fox, which launched January 2018 and will be led by president Alan Giagnocavo and vice president of content Christopher Reggio. The imprint will highlight the company’s children’s books with a special emphasis on birth to age ten. “Happy Fox Books will educate, excite, and help children understand the world around them,” says Reggio.

Happy Fox will launch with BigFoot Visits the Big Cities of the World and BigFoot Goes on Vacation. In these colorful seek-and-find children’s books, young readers will have fun searching for BigFoot, along with 500 other characters and objects. The books also include fun facts and educational information about various places BigFoot travels. Other titles slated to appear under Happy Fox in the fall will include two more titles in the BigFoot series—BigFoot Goes Back in Time and BigFoot Spotted at World Famous Landmarks. A celebratory launch for the series and new imprint will occur at the American International Toy Fair in New York City, February 17—20, 2018.

“Happy Fox books are for children and all of those who enjoy beautifully illustrated books,” says Giagnocavo. “As the name Happy Fox suggests, our books will be fun and created with the purpose of bringing happiness to our readers.”

Fox Chapel Publishing is best known as a publisher of craft books, and Happy Fox is its first effort to target the children’s market. The company saw recent success with its craft and other non-fiction titles geared towards a younger audience. Most notably, Notebook Doodles Super Cute Coloring & Activity Book by Jess Volinski became a best-seller with Baker and Taylor this year and continues to exceed expectations. Giagnocavo is mindful of a competitive children’s book market ahead but feels completely prepared saying, “we believe we have a unique perspective and competency to successfully bring our children’s line to market.”

View the on-line PDF of the NEW 'Woodworking Books & Magazines' catalog.

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
