Whittling fun. I started with a 1/2” x 5/8” x 4” piece of wood and whittling most of this little guy with just a knife. He is 2” tall.

Love the tiny detailed work that you do, and this is an excellent example. You mentioned “just a knife”, and I’m wondering if it is the small one that you made from a scraper?

Druid – I did use that knife from the scraper blade. It is very sharp and I can do a lot with the point of the knife. Thanks.

Cool. Reminds me of Brooks. At least I think that’s the name. The old librarian in “The Shawshank Redemption”.
