Detailed Description

Carving 18th Century American Furniture Elements. Author, Tony Kubalak

Carving 18th Century American Furniture Elements guides the reader through the process of carving authentic motifs found on the most treasured pieces of 18th century American furniture. Each of the 10 projects are presented in a step-by-step progression, from shaping the surface through layout, to rough carving and finally detailed carving. Each step is described in detail with emphasis on technique and methods used to accomplish the task. In addition, the text is supplemented with numerous annotated diagrams and photographs to assist the reader.

The intent of the book is two fold. First, is that the serious reader will be able to carve the elements from the text and photographs. These projects are not simplified versions that leave out the more complex details that make each element interesting and noteworthy. The entire process is covered and no steps are omitted.

Second, is to instill confidence in the reader that carving these elements is a learned skill and to provide guidance to that end. Carving 18th Century American Furniture Elements is intended for the serious student of American period furniture as well as those who are trying to improve their carving skills through practice and self study. It is written so that an experienced carver can learn new motifs and that a novice can gain confidence quickly. All of the projects are presented as part of a piece of furniture rather than stand-alone items that are for practice only. The projects selected for this book were chosen because of their importance and popularity in relation to museum quality 18th century American pieces.
