My wife and I gave our son, Kyle, a Whittlin’ Jack and The Little Book of Whittling by Chris Lubkemann for the holiday. He carved out this knife after spending just a short while with an aspen 1 X 2 blank. I’m so proud and impressed I just had to show it off.

Happy Holiday all you lumberjocks.

Thanks, Scrollgirl. My son is quite talented in many areas. I think he could be a great craftsman.

You should be proud; he did a fine job.
