Description



Book Synopsis



Presenting 10 projects--from shaping the surface through layout to rough carving and detailed carving--this guide explains the process of carving authentic motifs found on the most treasured pieces of 18th-century American furniture. Written with a two-pronged approach, the book first emphasizes that these are learned skills and offers guidance while, secondly, providing all the complex details that serious carvers need to reproduce each element with confidence. Selected for their importance and popularity on museum-quality pieces, projects include the cabriole leg, Philadelphia-style ball and claw foot, carved foliage on knee, Philadelphia rosette, and Newport flame finial, among others.



Review Quotes




""Whether you are a veteran woodworker seeking to broaden your skills or are new to period woodcarving, this book will give you the confidence to undertake what you have perhaps only appreciated vicariously."" --""Society of American Period Furniture Makers""""""
