basic knowledge of carving will be able to follow along and make a good bird.

with nothing more than a bench knife and 2 gouges.

THE ULTIMATE BAND SAW BOX BOOK IS BACK!

I am thrilled with the quality of this new issue of my book by Echo Point Books. Every page was faithfully
reproduced and contains everything that was in the original publication. The production quality is the same
as the original, (it still weighs 2 pounds), although (because it was copied) the photos are about 95% as
dark and clear.

The first publication saw 16,000 copies sold- and 660 of them by me personally. It was a pleasure to meet
and talk with so many interesting wood workers at shows and as I held box-making classes. When the book
was sold out and no more copies were going to be printed I copied the book and offered digital downloads
and a CD copy. Those offers still stand, but I have listed them farther down on this page to make it clear
what you are ordering.

I have ordered a limited number of these books to be sold by me and signed and dedicated however you
wish. It will be dedicated to the purchaser unless otherwise directed. I am super happy that they were able
to maintain such high quality standards and yet make the book available for a reasonable cost. They will be
mailed to you by USPS Priority Mail in a plastic bubble envelope.

HOW TO MAKE A BALL-JOINTED DOLL IN WOOD, BY DONNA MENKE

This 48-page booklet has taken me more than a year to make, and I am very proud of it.
I wanted to make a step-by-step set of instructions that any patient and careful wood
carver could follow to make this 7" doll. I looked all over for some information/plans, but
there were none that included details in carving such a doll. I detail every step necessary
to carve this doll with 120 photos that I took as I was making it.
I have included a page on how to prepare the blocks for each piece, 4 pages with all
real-size patterns, and a detailed illustration sheet showing exactly how to string the doll.
The instructions are available as a PDF download only.
