How to Make Music With Your Pocket Knifeby Rick Wiebe
Whittling is great fun, and this book shows you why. This book is all about one of the signature projects whittlers enjoy working on?the whistle?which can be make with a pocket knife and some readily available materials, most of which are gathered from nature.
While many people would like to whittle, and whittle whistles, most have no idea where to start. Even if they happen to possess good tools, beginners have very little idea of how to proceed. “Whittlin’ Whistles" addresses each and every detail of successful whistle making, and will quickly help beginning carvers produce fun and attractive whistles that they can show off to their friends.
Whistles are great fun for kids because a whistle can be made with just a few knife cuts. My first carving project ever, as a kid was a whistle and it's a great place to start family projects and get kids used to working with sharp tools. This book is designed to be understandable to younger readers, features numerous full-color instructional photos for each project, and provides a strong emphasis on basic safety and tool care. Featured projects include the classic slip bark whistle, tube whistles with and without a fipple, and reed whistles.
Great fun for the whole family, “Whittlin’ Whistles" is also perfect for large craft activities with church groups, summer camps, the Boy Scounts, etc.
