Mick Stidever recorded his journeys around the UK and the World in his book 'Ramblings of a Grandad'. This time he records his journey with his hobby of woodcarving. From scratch he faithfully records his endeavours with every carving he tackles, from a simple relief to a portrait bust of his Paralympic swimmer daughter Jane. A total of 47 carvings are presented in all. In this diary he recounts his emotions; his highs and his lows as he endeavours to achieve the best possible result with each and every carving. At times he succeeds; at other times he falls short but continually he strives to learn more about the craft. It records a thoroughly enjoyable journey, not solely related to the carving but to the people he met along the way and the many doors it opened to new experiences. This diary should provide encouragement, interest and a good read for anyone starting or participating in the craft of woodcarving. The book is a good and fascinating read and will inspire any carver to widen their horizons and appreciation of woodcarving. Michael Painter A.R.B.S
