Jubb "carving Japanese Netsuke" Book

Recommended Posts

I have just bought a copy of this book.

By another British woodcarver.

Very similar to Benson's book but about £5 cheaper.

Losts of photos of step by step methods, gallery of finished carvings, brief descriptions of various techniques such as inlay, eyes and 3 ways to carve bumps.

Happy to scan a page or two for people to see if that is allowed.

This was the first carving book I purchased for Netsuke.  It is a very simple introduction to materials, tools, safety, techniques, and a few start to finish examples.  Again very surface level and pretty short, but a helpful first read for a new carver.  👍


I have been hoping and waiting for Tom Sterling to print a copy of his carving book.  It's a bit more advanced and a lot longer than Jubb's.   It's available for free online for PDF readers.
