Got this book along with one for power carving gunstocks. I was primarily interested in getting a collection of patterns, but the book also has some good tips for developing skills as a carver. The patterns contained in the book have more applications than just on firearms. Many could be used for ornamental purposes on other carving projects.
Lora S. Irish always has wonderful patterns for wood carvings or wood burning. This is not a book of how "too", but, she created lots of patterns to share. I added this book to my collection of her books.
I have yet to do a stock only due to wanting to practice. This book holds some great designs and only wish there could have been more. I only gave it 4 stars due to the lack of this. Easy to follow and I'm glad I picked it over some of the others.
I had to wait several weeks because the publication I ordered before publication date. Having several Lora's book this one was up to her usual .high standard Thanks Lora
great art work ........good pictures......can see that she has learned from her father..........if she has any other books I would like to view them.....
The book has many nice patterns that you can interchange and expand on once you start doing them. It is a good place to start from to expand your skills.
A nice guide to working these patterns. One really needs some skill before attempting any of the patterns in this book. A very good source for ideas.
very disappointed noting but paper patterns no instruction what so ever I have many patterns she doesn't even show how to to one
