Cypress knees—stumps found in swamps of the southeastern United States that protrude from the water and vary in shape, size, and color—are the subject matter of this carving guide. Known for their excellent carving properties, cypress knees and their history are discussed as well as carving preparations and alternative options for those without access to this Gulf Coastal wood. Other chapters cover methods of pattern preparation and how to individualize carvings according to the unique, natural shape of each piece of wood. Readers will also benefit from a section on troubleshooting and step-by-step demonstrations on how to carve a wood spirit, Santa's face, and an elf.

Industry Reviews

A great book, very complete step by step instructions that guided me to complete my project. It is meant to stand alone and see you all the way through. I look forward to more material in this stile of writing. Highly recommended. Carole Jean Boyd's beautiful and informative book is a must for anyone interested in carving whimsical, charming Santas and other unique characters. Well written and illustrated with step by step instructions. I highly recommend "Carving Cypress Knees."
