Bird carving is now recognized as genuine American folk art. Here is the definitive, indispensable book on the subject of realistic bird carving for beginners, amateurs, or seasoned professionals. Master bird carver Bruce Burk takes carvers through the stages of carving, from choosing the best wood and tools to creating decoys and realistic painting. He delves into repairing decoys, cutting out a body from just one piece, burning in feather detail, drilling for legs, and duplicating iridescence. Complete with over 1,000 photographs and line-drawings, Game Bird Carving is the "bible" for any aspiring or professional carver.
