Paul Purnell is a self-taught woodcarver of approximately 15 years and specializes in birds—especially birds of prey—animals, and other wildlife. Paul's carving style uses a mixture of tools, including power tools, a carving knife, and some gouge work. He sells his carvings mainly through local commissions, county shows, and shops. For two years, he has carved projects for GMC's Wood Carving and Woodworking Crafts magazines.

Paul Purnell's beautifully carved walking sticks exceed what we envision carved walking sticks to be. Paul's magnificently handcrafted art transcends functional tools into personalized sculpture. His designs are impressively distinctive, profoundly detailed, and artistically innovative! Keith Mueller, World Champion avian wood sculptor, Ward Museum Living Legend, artist, and author

This heavily photo-illustrated, step-by-step publication is a must for beginners through experienced woodcarvers. Tom Hindes, best-selling author of 20-Minute Whittling Projects
