    Hi, I'm a fairly new carver (less than a month) I just received this book yesterday and I like it a lot. I've made a couple of practice boards and am looking forward to the projects.

    I got the book yesterday.... it is a super book for beginners, tons of information. Plus I am sure I am going to learn a few more tricks of the trade that will make it worth my money invested.....that is priceless. I got to say, when I first started carving I bought the wood spirit book by Lora Irish....those carvings are in top shape still!!! for something that is exterior that is a miracle here in the rainforest where the sun and rain dissolve wood..... tells me that this woman knows what she is talking about.

    Thank you for the picture Suzan. That is exactly what I meant... the 2 little flowers.

    It wasn't that terrible, but having the correct drawing makes it much easier.

    Btw, while I was working on the drawings, my wife asked me to save them for her, because she wanted to try her hand at relief (and chip) carving too. And she would like to start working on her own practice board when I start working on mine. That will be a first for her. So your book was really worth buying

    A last note to add that beside the pratice board, the book is full of invaluable information, no matter what your level of experience is.

    I only did some real practice at relief carving when I first began wood working some years ago, and this book will help me get back on my feet at this type of wood carving.

    Here is my starting setup.

    I received the book yesterday and prepared a practice board as showed in the book. That should help me to work on the other projects posted on the forum.

    The only detail I noticed is that the pattern for the exercices #23 and #24 is not on page 55 as specified. I had to draw it myself.

    Very good book.

    Ok, her latest tutorial (Canadian Goose) hooked me on relief carving again...

    I just ordered the book ;-)
