The Spring 2017 issue of the world's best how-to magazine for woodcarvers is packed with patterns, techniques, tips, and projects for all skill levels. Meet the father/daughter team of Nairi & Larisa Safaryan, and see how they use an indescribable technique to create utterly unique art. Randall Stoner, a lifelong fan of fantasy novels, captures his favorite tales in wood. Ralph Beam shows how to build your own carver's frame that leaves both hands free for carving. A clever geometrical design and careful carving turn Bill Johnsonâ€™s flat plate into a chip-carved optical illusion. Other projects include a textured panda cub, a folk art chess set, a comical elephant hanging hook, and a keepsake rose made from scrap wood. Discover new techniques for lino print blocks, low-relief portraits, coloring book patterns, and much more!
