I also carve small objects. These are Boy Scout neckerchief slides that I whittled on camping hikes while serving as scoutmaster of a local troop. Most are made from the basswood core of an old cabinet door. The mahogany veneer was left on the back of some slides to give strength to delicate details. Other slides were carved of walnut, aspen, and manzanita.

Those are really neat! I’ve carved a few myself, when serving as a volunteer leader for Scouts. One can’t tell from the picture, but telling us that they are neckerchief slides gives us the scale. Can’t get pics of all of the ones I made, as I gave some away to two of my nephews who earned Eagle Scout, as presents. None of my sons went that far.
