Return to Boy’s Life Magazine – Random interesting Articles

While reading the Boy’s Life Magazine Archive, I found a number of articles related to woodcarving

I found these articles interesting, Present day woodcarving seems to focus on figure carving, people, animals, and santas, but these articles seem to focus more on the basics, relief carving and small neckerchief slides

I enjoyed these articles, so I’m archiving them here so the articles will be available for me, and others might find this archive useful
