How to Carve Netsuke and Miniature Sculpture: Free Download
is a link to a detailed 361 page instruction book on how to carve netsuke
and miniature sculpture. The file is in Adobe Acrobat PDF format.
It requires Adobe Acrobat Reader (free download from www.adobe.com)
although you probably already have it on your computer - most newer
machines come with it already installed.
The PDF file is called Carving_Netsuke.pdf
It's an 18 megabyte file, so sorry for the marathon download if
you're on a soda straw connection.
the link: Carving_Netsuke.pdf
There is also a companion pattern file for making buckskin pouches that
you'll also need: Buckskin_Pouch_Patterns.pdf
At left is a reduced size example of a typical page. The page sizes
in the actual document are common screen sized 7 1/2 by 9 inches.
These instructions are copyrighted, and are
intended for your non-commercial use. In other words, have a good
time with them, but you aren't allowed to make money from selling
or distributing them (the instructions, not what you carve). I'm not
charging you for them, so please don't charge someone else.
