How to Whittle
by Josh Nava
Hardback

How to Whittle contains 25 beautiful and original designs to carve by hand. Featuring a range of projects from finely polished butter paddles and lovespoons to a custom-made coatrack, this book also provides advice on selecting the best wood for your projects together with details of a range of finishes that will take the items from rustic objects to stunning showpieces. The full-color photography and step-by-step instructions will guide beginners through every stage of the whittling process, from selecting and maintaining carving knives, to luxurious finishing techniques such as sanding, oiling, and curing surfaces. This age-old craft is easier than you imagine, and the process is therapeutic and rewarding in itself. How to Whittle is the perfect introduction to an inexpensive and beautiful craft that can be used to create heirloom gifts and unique keepsakes.

“This is a gorgeous book. It features 25 projects that are a mix of functional and decorative items, carrying on a centuries-old tradition. Nava does a wonderful job of distilling the topic of whittling into a concise, easy to follow book. The projects provide enough coverage to give you a wide range of capabilities. This is a wonderful book that will give you hours of enjoyment.” –Steve Branam, www.CloseGrain.com
