Since the first edition was published in 1994, this classic book has established itself as the standard reference on woodcarving. It should be required reading for all carvers. Volume one deals with the selection, sharpening and maintenance of carving tools. Though the emphasis is on traditional chisels and gouges, the use of power tools is also covered, and ancillary tools such as mallets, abrading tools, knives, punches and scratch stocks are all considered in detail.
