My Books

I have had the pleasure of writing some instructional carving books and actually getting them published!  Fox Chapel Publishing, Inc. has graciously given me the opportunity to do so.  Thank you to all those who have purchased and enjoyed my books; I hope to keep producing them as long as I have ideas to share...

If you wish to order, you may contact any major bookseller, or better yet, simply order direct from Fox Chapel Publishing, Inc.  Once you're at the site, select "search by author", and type in my name, Shawn Cipa.  While you're there, check out some other titles! Fox Chapel has many fine carving books to choose from.
