Have you been inspired by the carvers' projects here at LumberJocks.com, such as the work by Jordan, Mikelknot, and Mark Decou, to name a few? Is "carving a face" on your list of woodworking projects but you just don't know where to start? Here is a great place to begin --the resource book: "Carving The Human Face." With over 250 steps, broken down into eight working sections, the author carefully guides you through the process of releasing the human face from a chunk of wood. Each step is clearly explained in the text as well as the accompanying photos. Photos include work in progress, planning sketches and sketches of the human anatomy to help understand and achieve lifelike features. In addition to the detailed process for the featured carving, the reader is provided with examples of changes that can be made to the original design. Also included are photos of common mistakes made when carving a face as well as ways to fix the errors. As I read through the book, it seemed to me that as much work went into capturing the step-by-step process as it did to do the actual carving! I was very impressed.

This book is in memory of my Grandfather Kyle Phares. He always believed in me and had faith in what I was doing. I would like to offer my gratitude to my family and friends for their continued support and patience, and my thanks to photographer Marc Featherly for the outstanding photography within these pages. You are the best. My thanks also go to the Carvers that have had a hand in helping and motivating me to do what I love best, carving. I would also like to thank you guys, and you know who you are, for your constant encouragement to be the best that I can be. Last but not least, a special,heart-felt thanks to Lisa for all the last minute details and making me smile when I needed it the most.
