After the big Christmas flight, while elves are busy updating the naughty and nice list or planning next year's product lines, what does Santa do with his spare time? Tom Wolfe has come up with a variety of pastimes the jolly old elf might pick up on his days off. Some of Santa's activities have been set into motion, combining Santa and a whirligig. Over 260 color photographs and easy to follow instructions take the carver through all the necessary steps to carve a Santa you can be proud of.In the carving project presented, Santa has kicked off the boots, pulled up his favorite chair, and is channel surfing with his TV remote. This project has its challenges. Using power tools, Tom guides the reader clearly and concisely through each carving step, creating Santa, his chair, and his "surf board" from a single block of butternut. Tom knows these single piece carvings are more difficult, but he is quick to remind that they are also the ones serious carvers win contests with. Sixteen patterns for six projects and a color gallery complete this book. These projects will provide a challenge to the beginner and will be a delight for the more advanced power carver.
