From cover to cover this book is wonderful. The images are clear and very helpful. The projects in the book are items that everyone can use, and the directions are straight-forward and easy to understand.
This book is definitely good for beginners, but even the well-versed will find this an interesting read and addition to their collection.
I love that the book is a small size and hardcover. The photos included are clear, beautiful, and helpful. The author comes across clearly with her instructions and passion for this art form. She emphasizes that whittling is both just as rewarding as it can be dangerous. The book includes easy, intermediate, and hard projects and also includes some simple patterns in the back that you can follow. If you're looking for a new hobby or something to do with your fidgety hands, this may be the very thing for you!
I received this book from the publisher but was not required to leave a review. All opinions expressed here are my own.
