"Reverse relief" design is an easy introduction to relief carving
By Lora S. Irish
For this project the background wood—the wood outside the pattern—is left at the original level of the wood surface. Only the actual design area is carved, creating the appearance in the final carving that the face is sunken into the wood. This low relief carving does not include any undercutting.
Learn how to carve children's faces by making a jointed doll
By Janet Denton Cordell
When I was a child, I didn’t play with dolls much. However, as an adult and a professional woodcarver, I began to notice that no one made carved dolls and that a well-made doll could be a work of art. One of my friends calls my dolls poseable sculptures.
This toy box started life as a simple, mass-produced, but well-made paintable box. I converted it into a sea chest by adding a rope molding around the base, a seashell on the lid, and a scroll-like banner to the front with the name of the little pirate who was to own it.
All of these applied elements could find homes on other projects, such as a mirror or picture frame, a shelf or bathroom decoration, or a cutting board. You can use them together, as I did, or separately. The wood for the carvings must be easy to carve, such as basswood, mahogany, or tightgrained pine.
Combine carving, woodburning, and painting to make an adorable animal
By Leah Goddard
Despite all the jokes—and after teaching this project for over a year, I have heard them all — the beaver is unquestionably an adorable animal. The beaver is truly an amazing animal and has become a beloved mascot of many. I call my beaver Justin.
Power carve a cup from salvaged wood
By David Drake
At a rib and brisket competition in Texas, our group of chefs decide to use coded measuring cups so we could share information in our recipes without giving away secrets. Using a reptile theme, we decided a 1/4 cup would have a tadpole handle, 3/4 cup would have a lizard handle, etc. Now we can make our recipes in public and only those who know the сой* recognize the measurements. The coded cups also make fun serving ladle* and water dippers.
