This book is ideal for the beginner who is just starting out on a new hobby of whittling. It gives you details of all the equipment you need and close up pictures of the techniques for the cuts etc. However the majority of the projects are cockerels - cockerels leaning back, cockerels leaning forward, cockerels looking up - depending on the angle of the fork in the twig. For inspiration for a wider range of projects you need to look elsewhere.

Great follow up to his first book. Chris Lubkemann brings home his love of cockerels (or roosters) in this books and he can make small cockerels! Lovely lamps and a chess board with, yes, cockerels as the pieces, trees, birds and flowers are just some of the things he brings us. His usual tips, and wit and humour encourage. Recommended.

Fun to read and have very useful tips on knife handling. The projects are a foundation to more complex things, a good starting point. Looking forward to do this together with my son.

Some nice ideas for whittling with good illustrations. Good ideas for father-son time. See if I can learn something and share it with the next generation.
