Excerpt from Wood Carving: Being a Carefully Graduated Educational Course for Schools and Adult Classes

The art of carving does not consist entirely in producing evidence of mastery over tools and material: this dexterity merely constitutes the means to an end; therefore to elucidate the principles under lying all good work would appear the most rational way to approach the subject.

What is wood-carving as distinguished from the art of wood-cutting? It is, or should be, one of the many means of ex pression. In this sense it is the expression in material form of ideas, the outcome of personal observation of nature and works done in ancient and modern times, or what we may see through the eyes of our favourite sculptor, etc., in which case we unfortunately surrender our own individualism.
