Add to Basket
Book Description

Using just a couple knives, some basic tools, and a few pieces of wood, you can create 25 beautiful and original heirloom gifts and keepsakes, from polished butter knives and love-spoons to custom-made coat hooks and bespoke building blocks.

How to Whittle contains 25 beautiful and original designs to handcraft. Featuring a range of projects, from beautiful polished butter knives and lovespoons to custom-made coat hooks and bespoke building blocks, this book also provides advice on selecting the best wood for your projects together with details of a range of finishes that will take the items from rustic objects to stunning showpieces.

The full-colour photography and step-by-step instructions will guide beginners through every stage of the whittling process, from selecting and maintaining carving knives, to luxurious finishing techniques such as sanding, oiling, and curing surfaces.

This age-old craft is easier than you imagine, and the process is therapeutic and rewarding in itself. How to Whittle is the perfect introduction to an inexpensive and beautiful material that can be used to create heirloom gifts and unique keepsakes.
