Make Fantasy Creatures Come Alive.... in Wood

If you love caricature woodcarving, and your imagination roams to magical worlds, this book is for you! Inside you'll discover five new fantasy creatures just waiting to be released from wood. Follow along with popular woodcarving instructor and author Floyd Rhadigan as he reveals his techniques for carving fun and fantastic beasts.

The author begins with a helpful review of carving materials, tools, and techniques. Then he takes you step by step through the process of carving and painting a Watchful Dragon. Completing that project allows you to master all of the basic skills necessary to move on to four additional carving projects. Learn to create imaginative creatures like Penelope Pig and the Reptilian Knight, with detailed patterns that make the cuts clear and easy to follow.

All of the witty and whimsical projects in this book can be carved using only a few tools. Whether you are a beginning woodcarver looking for an easy way to get started, or a more advanced artist searching for new ideas, you'll find a wealth of inspiration here.
