The Textbook For Carving Letters
By Terry R. Wolff
A Woodcarving Instruction Book.
Although the subject of this book is carving incised letters, the technique taught here is also ideal for those just getting started with this art. Ideal for both the beginner and experienced carver as well. You will learn how to carve using
the one knife method.
What you will learn from this book is not just
letter carving but an easy way to carve whatever direction your carving
interest take you. This technique I am sharing in this book is just an
easy way I have found to get your carving skills up and running without
having to do a lot of thinking about what you are doing.
The principle I am employing here are much like
going back to those early days when your teacher made you make those pencil
lines between the printed lines on the paper. Once you had mastered
each assignment your teacher had you start printing letters and from there
you were doing script. Finally you may have taken up drawing or
calligraphy and then perhaps sculpture. So you see, you started with
simple straight lines and graduated from there. This is the same thing
I have you doing in this book.
