Giving a hand-carved Christmas ornament or gift is as much fun as it is to make one. This compilation of favorite Christmas carving projects from the archives of Woodcarving Illustrated includes projects and patterns for delightful carvings made from clothespins, caricature ornaments, a Christmas stocking, whittled pencils that make great gifts, a folk art tree topper, an evergreen tree with painting instructions, lovely earrings and much more. And of course, there are many Santa projects as well.
Tom has come up with a variety of pasttimes the jolly old elf might pick up on his days off.
In the carving project presented, Santa has kicked off his boots, pulled up his favorite chair, and is channel surfing with his TV remote.Tom knows these pieces are more difficult, but he is quick to remind that they are also the ones serious carvers win contests with.
