Sometime last year my husband and I decided to try our hands at whittling. Both of us had a sudden taking with it, wanting to delve into this beautiful old-fashioned hobby. After doing some internet research, we bought some whittling tools from a craft shop and tried them out on bars of soap.
Neither of us was very good. And we haven’t magically become good at it since, either.
But then I came across this book, and I think it’s going to be an excellent assistant as I dive back into the world of whittling. Abrantes gives clear, simple instructions and provides a range of projects (easy, intermediate, and hard) and the templates and instructions necessary for each. I’m very eager to try out the tips and methods laid out in this book.
The book is cute and small, a perfect size to tuck in alongside a chunk of wood and a knife. If you’re looking for a simple guide to whittling, I definitely recommend this one!
