With beautiful accents of historic ornamentation, these functional items are perfect projects for both the beginner and advanced carver, guiding carvers from start to finish with detailed instructions and step-by-step photography. Woodcarvers will learn how to make classically carved bookracks and bookends, an heirloom-quality jewelry box, a cabinet for storing CDs, and much more. In addition, aspiring carvers will acquire the skills and confidence needed to design their own carvings while gaining insight into the tradition, practices, and craftsmanship of architectural woodcarving.

Wilbur does not just give, however, an instructional "how-to" for the average carver. Sure, you can use the book that way, but it offers much more. He provides conception through completion instructions, step-by-step photography, advice on design and woodcarving techniques, and suggestions on how to determine what best matches your space. The projects included are for a range of skill levels. The beginner will find ample opportunity to hone new skills while the more advanced woodcarver will find challenging and detailed projects that push them to their limits and beyond. In addition, the book offers keen insights into the art of woodcarving, providing detailed descriptions of the traditions, practices, techniques, and tips that have made Wilbur such a treasure to woodcarvers worldwide. Woodcarving is an art, but Wilbur makes it accessible to almost everyone. That is partly why he is such a legendary woodcarver and why this book is a must-have for anyone interested in learning or perfecting their woodcarving skills.
