It's ok....i guess
on 22 December 2014
I bought this to add to my small collection of wood carving/whittling books. I guess it's a light hearted introduction to using a knife to carve wood into pretty basic objects. I have to say most the objects will be of no interest if you're over the age of 8. Some of them are quite nice, like the spoon I guess. I was pretty disappointed that in some of the tutorials he uses a drill, which kind of defeats the object but hey ho it was a cheap buy.
If you want to get into the fundamentals of whittling, look elsewhere. For starters, he uses a pocket knife with a double bevel whereas wood carving knifes are single bevel blades.
