    Milan's "Wood Carving" Handout (PDF)

    Every little bit helps us reach our goal. Support at this level and you will receive a thank you email from the publisher along with regular project updates and news about special offerings or events during the campaign. Everyone who pledges at any level will be able to follow along with our progress and updates.

    As a special thank you we will send you a PDF of an actual handout that Emil Milan created to give to his students in the 1970s. This is a six page document that covers the basics of wood carving, wood characteristics, tool usage, and finishes. It includes some hand sketched diagrams by Milan. A truly special piece of Milan history.
