Mastering Basic Techniques

Once you have the right tools, you can start learning the basic techniques of whittling and woodcarving. The first step is to learn how to hold the knife correctly. You should hold the knife with a firm grip, with your thumb and forefinger resting on the top of the blade.

Projects for Beginners

* A spoon * A bowl * A carving * A walking stick * A toy

These projects are all relatively easy to make, and they will help you to develop your skills. As you gain more experience, you can start working on more complex projects.
