Carving tutorials

I found a very helpful marionette carving tutorial on on a web site called Puppets in Prague. Professionals run workshops on building traditional Czech armatures as well as manipulation and performance.

Under the how to make puppets link there are a number of step by step guides on:
  • Preparing to start
  • Drawing - proportions and technical drawing
  • Cutting wood block
  • Cutting ruff puppet shape
  • Carving
  • Assembly
  • Costume
  • Tools - chisels, gouges and saws
I should also research into other types of wood masonry other than marionette carving like wood turning for example.
