50 Bird Woodcarving Patterns
For readers whose interests include proudly making things out of wood, particularly birds, then 50 Bird Woodcarving Patterns should be your next purchase. In Frank C. Russell’s newest book, he begins with instructions on the layout, texturing, relieving, and shaping of the feathers, setting the eyes, and construction of the bird’s feet and talons. The birds he includes are in the categories of miscellaneous birds, songbirds, and waterfowl. The forty-six birds in Russell’s book include mostly common ones such as the Cockatoo, Egret, Flamingo, Heron, Ostrich, Robin, Cardinal, and Mockingbird. A bird data chart lists all of the birds in the book along with other distinguishing features about them. For a woodcarver, this is a great way to find patterns of intricate and beautiful birds.
I am not a woodcarver myself, but I know of several people who are. While reading through this book, I thought of them and how they would have no problem reading through this book and creating pieces of art. I am in awe of Russell’s woodwork shown in the book. The pictures are bright and beautiful.
