Issue 178 of Woodcarving magazine is filled with a host of great articles for you. In our Projects section, Dave Western makes a Celtic-style flower lovespoon; Alan Denham lets his imagination take flight with his quirky bat mirror; Steve Bisco carves an Art Nouveau-style panel; Zoe Gertner carves a cluster of mushrooms; Mark Ivan Fortune makes a hand-held vanity mirror; and Cedric Boynes shares an interesting party piece: a Peruvian ‘magic’ pitcher.
In Features, we meet pastor and woodcarver Nate Elarton, who loves carving faces and fantasy figures; chainsaw artist Carrie Yuen explains how she designed and carved three benches from a much-loved village tree; Italian woodcarver Angelo Ponticelli shares his latest work; John Samworth tells us how Cornwall Woodcarvers are passing on the craft to young people; and we take a tour of the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna.
We have some great Techniques pieces for you too. John Samworth introduces the technique of illusion in relief carving; Peter Benson shares his tips on carving from a photograph; Nic Westermann explains the advantages of stropping; and Tatiana Baldina demonstrates how to lay out some basic patterns for a chip carving sample board.
