Carving an 1880s Western Train by Caricature Carvers of America
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This 1880s-style Western Train woodcarving is part of the effort of The Caricature Carvers of America to promote the art of caricature carving. This new book contains not only pictures of the wonderful finished work, but patterns for the characters and an extensive how-to section by Dave Stetson for carving one of the figures. The carvings, the train, and the buildings were created by members of the CCA, which is comprised of 25 of North America's best caricature carvers. Their work is presented in full color, detailed photographs, that will help the reader appreciate the skill and inventiveness of the carvers. The included patterns and the instructions make the book a helpful starting point for carvers wishing to create their own figures.
