|Splitting and Carving - Course: Manual Woodworking Techniques. Instruction Examples for Practical Vocational Training|
The present booklet contains three instruction examples to practise the techniques of splitting and carving with various splitting and carving tools for different jobs, such as
- splitting-up of round timbers and logs,
- rough shaping of timbers with the axe,
- carving of accessories for furniture and structural elements.
Free working with splitting and carving tools can be applied in the entire field of manual woodworking.
The necessary materials, tools and auxiliary accessories are specified for each example to facilitate the preparation and execution of the work.
Previous knowledge of sketching, drawing and stencil making is required and should be recapitulated at the beginning.
The sequence of operations given for each example contains the order of working steps required for the relevant working technique. This sequence should be followed if a good quality of work is to be achieved.
The operations included in the instruction examples serve for preworking of workpieces which, after further working steps, can be finished to produce things ready for use.
