Many wood carvers have attempted and failed in carving the nativity, thwarted by the myriad details of so many figures. Now, Lynn Diel brings a refreshing simplicity to the scene. He uses flat plane carving techniques on basswood to create a beautiful tableau that even a novice can successfully complete. Using over 250 color images, 4 patterns, and clear step-by-step instructions, the reader is taken through all the steps necessary to carve and finish each figure in the nativity: Mary, Joseph, Jesus and His creche, an angel, shepherd, the three kings, a camel, donkey, ox, and sheep. All of the easily obtained materials and tools needed for these projects are listed. Once the techniques are mastered, the reader will be able to create many nativity sets sure to be treasured by family and friends for years to come. This book will be inspiring for the novice and a joy for the experienced carver.
