If you thought carving a linked chain or a ball-in-cage was a challenge, you'll be astonished at these seemingly impossible objects made from a single piece of wood!

There is a school of mathematical art that explores the frontiers of what is possible in a given space. Woodcarving Magic author Bjarne Jespersen is a master of this art. Bjarne is an internationally-known woodcarver and sculptor from Denmark and has spent his life studying geometric form.

Inside this book, Bjarne shares 29 mind-altering designs and projects for woodcarving. These "tricky objects" contain connected parts that are loose, yet cannot be taken apart.

Get started with advice on choosing wood, selecting tools, and preparing blanks. Then, the more than 25 projects include those for both the beginner and the experienced carver, featuring step-by-step diagrams and detailed instructions that break down the process into achievable steps.

Each project includes detailed diagrams illustrating the carving process along with notes from the author about the composition and design. Also included is information about this tradition of woodcarving and a detailed appendix.

Learn how to uncover the structure of space by looking inside a piece of wood and carving away anything that doesn't match your vision. Those with an engineering mind will enjoy the author's explanations of his creative geometric methods. Those with a mathematical mind will marvel at how beautifully art and math come together. If you enjoy woodcarving, you'll find challenges to strengthen your skills and appreciation for the novel forms presented. Even the model builder or 3D printing enthusiast will find these shapes exciting to create and experiment with!

From flat rings to linked cages to magic spheres and beyond—Woodcarving Magic is a book that will keep woodcarvers challenged for a long time!
