Whittling and Carving

Whittling is perhaps the simplest form of wood working. It can be done with only a carving knife. For beginners interested in whittling as a hobby I recommend getting at least one quality knife. It should be sharp and kept sharp throughout the carving. I recommend getting a detail knife, these knives usually come to a fine point which allow you to get into tighter spaces.
What the video to see the ways I hold my whittling knife to make a cut.

Once you feel comfortable enough holding the knife feel free and try to carve a small figurine. In this video I show you how to carve a little bunny. Part 1 shows you the roughing out process.

In part 2 I show you how to carve the details using the same knife.
