The Wonder of Whittling

 Whittling is a pastime that has been around for a long time. In early times, it became popular with crafty folks who could whittle out of almost anything and almost anywhere. The art of whittling is based on using only one tool, the knife, and a piece of wood. Some purists say that is all that should be used for whittling. Modern times have changed the art of whittling a little bit. First of all, the quality of tools is better, and you can use a wider variety of tools and blades to whittle with. Some modern whittlers use a variety of gouges and knife blades to do this craft. The main things that haven't changed are that whittling is still done by hand holding your work. Also, there are no power tools, mallets, or generally sanding used in whittling. As long as you have a sharp whittling knife and a piece of soft wood to work with, you can be well on your way to your first whittling creation.
