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.
