Cheetahs are the fastest land animals. Their beautiful, sinuous bodies allow them to reach speeds of up to 70 miles per hour. Dale Power guides the novice and veteran carver through the process of capturing the beauty, speed and grace of these amazing animals in basswood with a combination of hand and power carving tools, wood burning equipment and paints. Step-by-step instructions, well illustrated with color photographs, simply and pleasurably guide the carver through each phase of the process. Details, including musculature, tear lines and tail rings, are included to give your cheetah a natural look. Patterns for three cheetahs walking, running and at rest are included. The gallery provides inspirational perspectives on the cheetah carved and several others to fire the imagination.
