Ken Blomquist takes readers through all the steps necessary to successfully carve and finish a Scandinavian Santa, using step-by-step instructions, 258 beautiful full color photos, and detailed patterns. This figure comes with a rucksack full of traditionally wrapped gifts and a walking staff to steady him during his annual trek.

The text includes a list of tools and paints required to complete the project, helpful suggestions useful to every carver, instructions for creating unique surface textures, and detailed painting instructions. A colorful gallery provides examples of different finishes and bases for the Scandinavian Santa. This project is an exciting challenge for novice and advanced carvers alike.
