With just a small pocketknife and this book, you can whittle unusual animals that are amazingly true to life, humorous characters, and dozens of other creations. Whittlin' Bill shares his unique techniques for carving--using patterns, choosing woods (including exotic ones), and finishing (that special touch that gives it the expert's look), and all with only a few basic tools: a carving knife, rasp, and sanding stick. Step by step, through large patterns, photos, and clear text, he guides young carvers--who can safely rasp several beginning projects without ever needing a knife! He challenges more experienced carvers with the Dozing Duck, the Tiki (in a profusely illustrated chapter demonstrating the use of chisels), a magnificent Clydesdale horse, and whimsical human caricatures. He even provides creative carvers with the know-how they need to whittle just about anything they set their minds to.--From publisher description.
