this video was originally produced for the growing vhs video market in 1984. it was an excellent teacher for a few years then due to the demise of the national carvers museum it was put in mothballs. recently, due to the internet's wide audience, it has been decided re-edit it and bring it back to life as a dvd. this makes it an even better teacher.

rich wetherbee in 1984 had already made a much admired name for himself. his incredible skill is so apparent in this dvd. he also has a fun way of describing every action he is taking. his humor and assurance that you can do this carving make for an excellent learning experience. the length of dvd is 1 hour 40 minutes.
