Heirloom Wood: A Guide to Carving by Max Bainbridge
Heirloom Wood: A Guide to Carving by Max Bainbridge  

The old craft of hand carving is revisited in this stylish and attractive book. Bainbridge, cofounder of sustainable craft business Forest + Found, displays a selected collection of hand-carved pieces, including spoons and utensils, a cutting and serving board, and a small bowl. Detailed instructions on tool use and finishing techniques are included. A great section on tool care completes the book. While some of the resources and woods are only available in England, the projects and instruction are excellent. Similar to Joshua Vogel's The Artful Wooden Spoon, Bainbridge's work provides excellent detail in illustrations and technique.
