An introductory video a simple relief carving project
This introductory video covers the first five steps to carve the simplist of the three leaves. Complete video instructions for carving all three leaves can be found on Chris Pye's Woodcarving Workshops, www.woodcarvingworkshops.tv. Complete step-by-step instructions and the three patterns are available in Woodcarving Illustrated Fall 2012 (Issue 60).
Of course, relief carvings can be a lot more complicated - you'll find other examples in Chris' books ('Relief Carving in Wood' and 'Woodcarving - A Practial Course' in particular).
