As a traditionally trained wood carver, working under the guidance of Michael Painter, I often find people asking me the same key questions at various shows and demonstrations I have attended whislt I have been working on a piece of carved work.


Originally, this booklet was concieved to be handed out to my full day carving courses I ran back in 2018, but with the above in mind, I decided to make it more generalised so anyone thinking about starting carving could have a basic guide to follow, covering: chisel terminology and types; chisel selection; sharpening with both a powered sharpener and by hand using a diamond whetstone; using a carver's mallet; and making cuts in timber.


The booklet is A4 in size and 34 pages long. It has images to help support the text and help further explain each section discussed.


It is bound and has a clear cover on the front; and a black cover on the back to protect it.
