    Whittling wood is not just a pastime for an older gentleman on a porch. Learning to carve wood and make projects is made easier with this how-to book. Very detailed instructions with accompanying pictures every step of the way are included in the 36 projects. Chapters are divided by age group and progressively more intricate work. An introduction discusses tools and abilities, providing not only projects for children of varying ages but an education for adults. Projects oriented toward younger children may require adult assistance until children are comfortable with the tools and techniques. Some projects include: a decorative serving platter, place card holders, a puzzle, simple and double whistles, holiday ornaments, and various decorative items. ~ Alissa

    This book was written to an adult, with the assumption that they will be introducing and guiding their children through this wonderful hobby. Although some experience on the adult's part would of course be helpful, the book is written for the beginner. A helpful introduction acquaints you with carving, wood, and the tools you'll need. The next section contains some simple practice projects that will help you (and your children) get comfortable with the techniques before you begin a more result-driven project. After this, the book is broken down into three chapters: The Youngest (ages 4-8), Preteens (9-12), and Teens (13-17). Each chapter holds three or four age-appropriate activities; some examples include a nameplate, a wooden spoon, and a duck carving. These chapters (as well as the introductory chapters) are simply formatted in step-by-step directions, each accompanied by full-color photographs to guide you through the project from beginning to end. 95 glossy pgs. – Melissa

You can use the woodburning pen to burn various designs into the wood and cork.

    Set of 12 carving tools with wooden handles includes 2 V-shapes, 1 C-shape, 3 U-shapes, an awl, 3 slanted blades and 2 flat blades. The handles are about 4" long and the metal blades are 1" with a sharp, beveled tip. Blades are .25" to .75" wide. These are perfect for block printing where you carve an image onto wood, roll ink over it and lay paper on top to make several copies of the image. You could also carve vinyl or linoleum for printing images. There is some safety instruction on the package, but these tools are quite sharp and should be handled very carefully. Basic techniques for holding and using the tools are included, but not enough to really guide a student who has never used these before. We carry a video called The Art of Block Printing which has very good instruction in this technique and would better address how to safely use these tools. ~Sara
