Whether you're a beginner just learning how to whittle, or an old hand looking for some new ideas, this book delivers plenty of fun, inspiration, and satisfaction. More than 100 step-by-step color photographs guide you through each project, as well as painting and staining your completed work. You'll learn Mike's quick and easy "clean-cut" method, plus his original formula for mixing your own wood stain in a blender. All 12 whittling projects feature distinctive patterns with easy-to-follow cut-lines. Whittling Country Folk, Revised Edition also provides valuable "Getting Started" advice on tools, sharpening, wood, and safety, as well as humorous down-home tales about each friendly country character.
