Always been a carpenter, ever since my first woodshop class.

Re: UPDATE: Carving in the Round by Andrew Thomas and How to Carve Wood by Richard Butz

After being disabled at a rather early age (58) I pondered for several years on what I could do to feel somewhat productive with what remained of my abilities as a carpenter for nearly 37 years. Since I am an avid sportsman and love to fish I thought I would try my hand at crafting my own fishing lures. It has become a real challenge and much of the work is done by hand carving the intricate shapes and features of the lures. I would like to expand into carving the fish themselves and these books would be a major help in developing the skills I need to accomplish that challenge. As they say, NEVER GIVE UP! Health and prosperity to all. Pappy
