Issue 179 of Woodcarving magazine is filled with a host of great articles for you. In our Projects section, Steve Bisco carves and gilds a Georgian-style floral ribbon festoon; Alan Denham creates a mirror frame decorated with wolves; Cedric Boyns begins work on a hare and tortoise money box; Dave Western carves a D-adze inspired by Northwest Coast First Nations style; Peter Benson makes a small owl; and Zoe Gertner carves a trio of hazelnuts.
We have some great Techniques pieces for you too. John Samworth demonstrates relief carving outlines; Tatiana Baldina makes a simple chip carving board; power tool and machine expert Bob Adsett takes us through the techniques for setting up and using a bandsaw; Nic Westermann tackles your tool-sharpening problems, this time focusing on V-tools; and Paul Purnell shares his tips for carving elegant and practical walking sticks.
In Features, we meet portrait carver Alec Lacasse, who is spreading the word about woodwork in online carving courses; and we take a closer look at London’s ‘cathedral to nature’, the Natural History Museum.
We also have updates from the carving community and a peek at our next issue.
All this and more in Woodcarving magazine 179!
