This review is from the March 2012 issue of our LJ eMag
Fox Chapel Publishing is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details)
The Big Book of Whittle Fun by Chris Lubkemann is a little “big book” filled with a “wot of whittlin’ fun”. Small in stature (a great size for taking with you when planning on doing a little whittling) but big in content!This book has over thirty projects and is an inspiration for many more.
- Games – check
- Jewelry – check
- Household items – check
- fun – check
and technique: also check.
The first of the book provides tips on knives, sharpening and honing, and modifying the knife if needed. It also talks about the three main whittling strokes used and different types of wood. Some projects do “cheat” a little and use a drill or Dremel-type tool but that’s fine with me.
Now all i have to do is go outside and find myself a twig or a branch so I can start whittlin’ away!
Two thumbs up for this book.
Maybe we’ll have a little whittlin contest at our Get-together in September!
