Whittle like you never have before! Go beyond traditional projects and discover a world of exciting possibilities! With this book, you'll create innovative toys, tools, and instruments you won't find anywhere else. Whittling in the Wild features more than 30 fun and exciting objects to make using your pocketknife, found wood, and a handful of easy-to-find items (both at home and in nature). Using your Victorinox (R) Swiss Army Knife with a saw attachment, you'll go beyond the typical walking stick and roasting spit to create unique devices like an apple slingshot, catapult, parachute, balloon saxophone, bird whistle, and dozens more. Inside this book, you'll find a refresher on basic whittling techniques like hand grip, rough cut, power cut, and pulling cut, as well as safety precautions from opening, closing, and stabilizing your tools to safely using the awl to stab, drill, and sew. Also included are steps to care for your Swiss Army Knife and expert tips to finding the right kind of wood for your projects.
