Wood carving – 60 amazing photos

Wood carving is an art that has been practiced for a long period of time and which flourished in France in the 16th – 18th century. We call wood carving the technique and also the work made of wood. The useful ones vary with technological advancement and the change from traditional to contemporary weather. Currently to make a wood sculpture the masters use: the reel; the electric stoneware grindstone; the router; the band saw the planer jointer, the chainsaw which is used to rough a round-bump; flexible transmission machines; carving discs. Even with a simple carving knife, it is possible to create shapes amazing and pretty.
