I checked this out from the library, but intend to purchase the book to keep. There are specific projects in here that are pretty well explained and fairly diverse. I used the Icelandic design to make myself a lazy kate (a device to use while plying spun wool) and it really came out well, despite my differing from intent and finishing from the book's suggestions.There are several other things in this book that would make it an excellent thing to have on the shelf if you are interested in power tool carving (dremel and the like). The wide range of techniques and projects, the specific suggestions about not only what tools to use when but also for what purpose, the color pictures in the center which really bring the projects to life, and the basics in wood carving that you will learn if you undertake a project. I have a million ideas and hope to purchase a more substantial dremel to use in my woodcarving pursuits. This book really helped me through the beginner stages of a new hobby, I highly recommend.
This book contains very good information about the different types and brands of power carving tools and was a great resource in helping me decide what tools to buy. It also contains several projects using the tools that are reviewed. For those who are interested in getting started in power carving I highly recommend it.
My daughter used this book, with her Drendel power tool to finish a carving she made for her mother. She is giving it to her for Christmas,. She (13 year old) said it was easy to understand and gave more in-depth directions than the book that came with her Drendel tool.
I was very pleased with this book and the personal touch and extra time put into personalizing it for me I would definitely recommend this to anyone who uses power tools to wood work
the book I ordered is most informative about wood carving with power tools. It's just what I needed. The author has done an excellent job.
Some useful info but the majority of designs are horrendous (very very ugly) and the tools used are very old and outdated.
