Review 1 by: W J Lacey
Rating given:
"Beginners Guide to Woodcarving by Jonathon Ridgeon is fantastic, the short book literally offers the reader dependable and vibrant photographs, mixed in with extremely clear and concise writing to support them.
This book, as with the others in the series written by Jon points the reader toward seeing such beauty and art within such basic of materials, which inspires us to want to recreate it for ourselves. The great way in which this book has been written, makes what you read seem tangible, as if we can connect the invisible line from book to reality.
It also offers us, the reader, a very involved and well written bonus article on how to correctly sharpen our tools, and displays the enormous amount of skill Jon holds. After all “seeing is believing” and the photos certainly helps us to see this. To me, the sign of a fantastic tutorial! "
