21 Carvings for the Day After Christmas

Every year many well used and loved Christmas Trees are thrown away. This book shows how to cut your Christmas tree into usable parts. Al and Trinka will guide you through carving next years ornaments from the trunk and limbs. You can use the parts of the trunk  to carve Elves, Santa's and much much more. The branches can be used to carve angel's blowing trumpets, elves with long noses, and Santa's with a hat.  They will show you how to sketch out various figures that fit well into your wooden segments which you'll use to cut, carve, sand, and finish your figure with paint, and hanging hooks. There are step-by-step instructions for 2 projects, a Santa carved with hand tools, and a Herald Angel blowing a trumpet carved with power tools. Numerous patterns & a gallery with hundreds of color photos of finished projects to help guide the carver from start to finish.
