This book outlines 31 project ideas you can complete quickly and easily from scrap lumber or natural wood using only a knife and a few other simple tools. It begins with advice on choosing a whittling knife and keeping it sharp, followed by a short primer on a few basic cutting strokes and on wood selection.
Some of the projects described are functional, such as a toothpick holder or crochet hooks, while others are decorative, from a carved rooster to various pendants. The projects also include a number of toys and games, including a miniature bowling set, a wooden top and a toy boat. Enjoyable crafts for young and old.
