Product Description

From the Back Cover

With little more than a knife, a branch – and a dose of concentration – this book will show you how to create unique keepsakes that are fun to make, will be appreciated as gifts, or can be popular items for sale.

Author Chris Lubkemann – a woodcarver since age seven – is pleased to share his lifelong love of whittling in Whittling Twigs & Branches. Inside, you’ll find everything you need to master the basic woodworking technique called curling to create birds, trees and flowers.

  • Getting started: choosing and sharpening the right knife, plus characteristics of the best wood species
  • Basics of making curls: tips and techniques on the basic cutting strokes, and details on creating tail curls
  • Whittling a rooster: guidance on creating the body and the tail, details on painting and finishing and choosing a base
  • How-to’s on other designs: including pheasants, herons, roadrunners and miniature trees and flowers
  • Troubleshooting: advice on what to do when a carving doesn’t proceed as planned

Also inside is a picture gallery of finished pieces to give you inspiration in your own work, including table lamps, whimsical characters, letter openers desk plaques and a chess set.
