The 20th anniversary issue of the world's best how-to magazine for woodcarvers is packed with carving patterns, how-to tips, and step-by-step projects for all skill levels. We offer plenty of Christmas carving ideas for holiday gifts and decorations, from Larry Green's delightful caricature tree ornaments to an exquisite relief-carved snowman from Lora S. Irish. Our jolly assortment of Santa projects includes Dylan Goodson's realistic St. Nick, plus a new chance to carve our very first Santa from Woodcarving Illustrated issue #1. Carolea Hower creates smiling Santas from ordinary wooden spoons, and Randy True shows how to transform ordinary golf tees into tiny Santa ornaments! You'll also find many great projects unrelated to Christmas that will make terrific gifts. "Game of Thrones" fans will enjoy Tamera Seevers' dragon wand, Tom Dean shows you how to use power tools to carve heirloom-quality bracelets, and Karen Hundt-Brown uses a woodburner to turn gourds into functional lamps.
