"The emotional effect of woodworking is that it gives kids that sense of accomplishment. Parents see a happy kid beaming with excitement of possibilities." -A woodworking teacher Three years back, I asked one child psychologist: What is the best way to make a connection with my 8 and 13-year-olds as they are growing up? I was worried about excessive exposure to T.V, Mobile Phones and wanted to do some activity together to be much of an enabler and guide. He said," Why don't you try Woodworking in your backyard? That would serve all your purposes. " That was one of the best pieces of advice I got off late. We hit it off and started with whittling, woodworking with just a wooden stick and a pocket knife. After that, we moved on to woodworking with multiple tools. The kids only used more straightforward tools, and I handled the complicated part. Safety was of utmost priority, and I always led with example. This book entails our journey with 31 Whittling and 20 Woodworking projects. It covers: - Woodworking and Whittling definitions, background, history - Why kids and teenagers should practice it or how they would inculcate various skills while practicing this art which would help them in an extremely dynamic world they would face - Best practices and safety instructions - Tools with details of ways to use them - Processes and Techniques - 51 Starter Projects - Tips, Guidelines, and Online Resources A perfect company for a weekend or holiday!

"Whittling for me is more than just an art. It is like meditation and rather therapeutical. Every single time you create something, it brings you the delight and also the happiness that meets your mind and soul". This is the reply I got from an old practitioner when I asked him how do you interpret Whittling. Then I realized the core idea behind this craft. It comes with no deadline, no pre-written script, no rules, and just pure expression of your emotions through a knife and a piece of wood. In the present times, when all the self-help gurus are talking about Digital Detox, Whittling comes as a strong contender to pass on to the young and the old alike. My Journey in Whittling My wife introduced me to the world of Whittling 5 years ago. As I was already into Leather craft and Pyrography, I got the basics quickly. But reaching the intermediate level in any art requires practice and patience. It has been an incredible journey for the last few years, working alongside her on various Whittling projects. About the Book This book is like a friend sharing his experiences and taking you from point A to B in your Whittling journey. The examples and references are real and taken out of the conversations with various experienced Whittlers. The book covers: Introduction: History of Whittling, how it started, and became part of popular culture. Wood: All about the type of wood, grains, and tips for starting. Tools: All about pocket and carving knives Techniques: All type of cuts Safety: Gloves, Thumb pads, duct tape, and other innovative options. Starter projects with photos and step by step instructions Frequently asked questions: 22 beginner questions as answered by experts: Multiple solutions to a single problem List of online resources for patterns I have included realistic photographs, discussions, tips, FAQs, which I have received along the way of my journey in Whittling over the years. Still on the fence? Okay, let me explain to you the difference between Wood Carving and Whittling? Whittling is like an unplanned vacation (go with the flow), and Wood Craving is like planning a vacation through a tour operator! And lastly my favorite analogy: When I was struggling to understand the concept of wood grain initially, one old-time whittler told me, "Think of the grain-like petting a cat. When you pet it head to tail, the fur all lies down, and the cat purrs. If you try to go from tail to head, it spikes up, and the cat gets very angry. Keep the cat happy." So what are you waiting for, get the book now and start your Whittling Journey!

Your family got together, possibly taking the family dog along, got into the car and departed in that direction, a bit like USS ENTERPRISE, but this time going where so many families have gone before. Your parents knew exactly where you would be doing the camping, because they knew the best camping sites from experience and personal knowledge. Camping for most of us meant swimming, barbecues outside, sing-along around a campfire, with the crickets and katydids chirping away merrily in joyful companionship, and then somebody who had a really wicked sense of humor would start telling eerily terrifying and creepy stories, well chosen to make every single hair and hackles at the back of your neck rise in horror terror and panic! And then you need somebody to accompany you to your tent, as you creep shivering into your sleeping bag, mouth dry and totally unable to sleep, knowing full well, that nightmares are going to follow you, for quite a while afterwards. Especially the Cat Goddess, the lady in black, the Were tiger, who was once an accursed Egyptian priest and so on! And you promise yourself, that if you get through the night, safe and sound, you are going to wake up in the morning and strangle that wicked storyteller. Let me admit, I happen to be one of those human horrors, with a good stock of terrible, horrible tales, garnered from all around the world, since childhood, and half of them were learned in scouting/guiding camps, and then on camping trips with friends, their families, and colleagues.
