Carving Wooden Animals

E. J Tangerman | 1899 | ISBN: 0806988649 | 130 pages | PDF | 102 MB

The grace of a bird in flight—a stallion in full gait—a procession of circus animals—all the beauty, strength and style that the woodcarver wants to capture on his own work.

Here, at last, E. J. Tangerman, world-renowned author and carver, has gathered together his designs drawn to scale, and his step by step photographs, to enable anyone interested in wood craft to emulate. With hundreds of ideas and treatments, graded from beginner to advanced, this is the one-volume working library on carving animals. You win find invaluable instructions on:

* Carving in the round and relief
* Greek peasant carving
* Israeli “Sudden Sculpture"
* American Indian stylized animal figures
* Creating your own designs

This book stresses the often-negiected all-important finishing touches—simulating skin, scales, feathers, and wood selection for individual projects and more. A complete introductory section, including tool selection and care, wood choice, sharpening tools, and basic usage will give you all the information you'll need for success. Even experienced woodcarvers will find the unique section on making your own D-adzes invaluable. The first few designs can even be completed with a knife alone, while the rest are readily done with a few inexpensive tools.

Everything you'll need to know to make your carving ”alive” is included.
