Carving Faces in Wood-Lacasse


Carving faces is arguably one of the hardest things to do when woodworking, but it is an essential skill. Carving Faces in Wood will help carvers master the fundamentals of faces in either realistic or stylized pieces. Carver and author, Alec LaCasse, teaches beginners how to simplify the complex forms of the human countenance, using the rules of proportion to guide readers through every aspect of the face and then teach them how to put it all together to avoid making an accidental Picasso. With tips, techniques, and exercises galore, this book gives wood carvers everything they need to build their skills and have fun in the process.
