are one of the oldest crafts known to man, but one which has been
almost lost. This book helps reverse that trend, reviving interest
by introducing the carver and woodworker to exciting new possibilities.
Using only hand tools, the bowl adze, a bowl shave and a carverís
hook, Rip and Tammi lead the carver or sculptor through the steps
of this satisfying art.
They begin with
a blank and conclude with an oil finish process that makes the bowls
beautiful and safe for use with food. Each step is illustrated in
color, with a complete description of design and technique concerns.
Both the beginner and the experienced woodworker will enjoy the
creation of these functional, beautiful pieces.
