This set of three DVD's has in-depth instruction for beginning woodcarvers as well as detailed tips for power woodcarvers who want to enhance their technique. Frank Russell shows the many steps involved in bringing simple blocks of wood to life.
The Cotton Tail Rabitt, the Mallard Drake Duck, and the Small Mouth Bass are the focus of this film - the star, however, is Frank Russell himself. His congenial manner and accomplished teaching style lend to the enjoyment of learning to carve.
Pop says: Frank is a personal friend of mine but don't let that deter you ...he is an awesome talent and I highly recommend this wonderful 3 hour and 40 minute DVD set.
