Whittling as a Hobby

My Work

Webster's Definition: hobby

An activity or interest engaged in for pleasure, and not for profit.

Welcome to the world of whittling, a hobby for some, an obsession for others, a joy for all. Whittling is as ancient as mankind itself, and has provided a means for expression both artistic and functional.  This site is devoted to all things whittling, and I hope that you will be inspired to pick up a knife and get going.

Resources are provided here for you to locate raw materials, educational and training information, and to contact the author who himself is a practiced whittler.

This site is a work in progress, check back once in a while to see what's new.  To get going just click on one of the buttons to the left, and begin your journey. 


Note: I whittle for fun, not for money.  I don't sell any of my works, nor do I do work on commission.  Please don't ask.
