Summary, etc.:
"Norwegian Wood meets How to Tie a Tie in this irresistible gift for DIY enthusiasts. Using just a tool or two (a pocketknife and a gouge), readers will learn how to whittle 12 small objects and utensils, from a coffee spoon to a pair of dice, that take just a few hours to finish--and in the process carve out a little peace and quiet for themselves. Carve is an accessible guide to a hobby made for unplugging and connecting with the outdoors. Beautiful lifestyle and how-to photographs inspire readers to carve simple projects that include a comb, catch-all tray, camping fork and knife, air plant hanger, pair of dice, and more. Woodworker Melanie Abrantes also includes information on choosing the right knife and wood and tips on personalizing and maintaining a finished piece with staining, burning, monogramming, and more"-- Provided by publisher.
