There are some dualing reviews here, one reviewer loved the old fashioned carvings and illustrations, one of the reviewers did not like it since it is an older book and felt the instructions were not clear enough. I like it, including the old drawings. The carving challenges are very much the way things used to be, and the items for carving are very nostalgic to me. I posted a picture of the cover, so you can see some of the types of whittling projects there are in this book. It is challenging, but fun for any whittler. I do not think it is the best book for a beginner, but any seasoned whittler can figure out from the diagrams how to reproduce the amazing projects in the book. Wooden chains, animals, and the cage in ball are old classics, and he reveals the tricks behind them. The book was originally written by Walter Faurot in 1930, and he also drafted the illustrations. Special thanks to the publishers for bringing this oldie back to us.
Bring back a dying art form. Whittling or carving. Give me a stick or a discarded piece of wood and a pocket knife and I will whittle you a unique piece of art. This book starts the creative juices flowing helping you see a piece of discarded wood differently. What can your imagination and pocket knife create. Whittling builds hand eye coordination and allows an individual a way of expressing oneself. My wife takes all of my creations from a pair of pliers carved from a single piece of wood to a dog, girraffe, penguin or whatnots. This book will help you unlock you creativity with a carving knife. Note: buy a thumb guard to protect your thumb while whittling
As a retired 76 year old on a fixed income, I wanted a hobby that is inexpensive. I bought a good knife, some wood and this book and am having a great time.
Great for the person new to whittling.Good pics and good information.The right place to start if your new to whittling.
Projects shown in this book build and help train carvers for more intricate carvings. Good understanding of working with grain, cuts and patience.
