My Granddaughter picked up this book for me at a rummage sale. For those of you that are interested at giving wood carving a try this book is grate place to start. All the small projects the author does can be accomplished with nothing more than a sharp pocket knife, some tree branches and a few pieces of sandpaper. An excellent way to try wood carving with little to no investment.

I have it and it is a great little book by a great rustic whittler. He has a few other books also I think and some great ideas.

I have this and another similar book by the same author. I find whittling to be therapeutic but I am not very good. I usually whittle something then end up throwing them on the fire (yes, they're that good!) It is more like a way to relax than the act of making an end result for me personally. N.

I think all wood carvers create much "designer" firewood while we are learning. Even after we have gotten more proficient (not referring to myself) creating scrap is still a very real prospect. If mistakes are made it is tough to add wood back on!
