Woodcarving is an easy to learn and fun hobby for adventurous children and their parents.
This bright and interesting introduction, from the author of Snitte: The Danish Art of Whittling, includes more than fifty activities at levels for beginners and experienced whittlers. Each project includes easy-to-follow instructions, illustrations, and diagrams, as well as inspiring full-color photographs.
Along with their parents, children can craft a tumbling tower game, a toy racing car, a dolphin necklace, or even a handy coat hook!
Included is a section on practical steps to get started and advice on knife safety with children.
