"This is a great DVD set! I took a seminar from Floyd a year ago but this DVD set is like taking a seminar directed only to me complete with backup documentation for only the small sum of $49.95. It's my opinion that this type of DVD will help many a new and aspiring bird carver get it right. This is a case of the "picture show" being better than the "book". -- Harvey Golladay

"I have never learned so much about carving as I did through this video and although I have his (Floyd's) book on carving the Kestrel, the video has helped me way beyond its cost.This DVD will definitely improve my carving skills. I have learned many new techniques and some things that photographs would not have illustrated as well.... Floyd also emphasizes to relax and have fun. I really felt I was sitting in on one of his classes. I will relax and enjoy from now on." -- Warren Clauss, Wooden Hooters
