  • Hi everyone

    Hi everyone, my name is Steven, I'm 34 at the moment and live in the Netherlands. Recently I've picked up whittling again after not having whittled since I was a kid.

    I'm here on the forums to gain a little bit more inspiration, motivation and general ideas for new projects. I also love seeing other people's carvings and learning from them. All in all the foremost important thing for me is to find kind like-minded people!

    I'll add some of my more recent carvings and wish everyone a great day!

                  Hi Steven - welcome to this group. Your interests at this stage seem to be what we call whittling - small carvings using a knife. I also spent some time whittling when I was a Scoutmaster. Part of our uniform was a neckerchief, a scarf around the neck whose ends were secured by a wooden slide. There are many shapes that would perform the function of holding the ends of the neckerchief. Here are some that I carved: Each has some symbolic connection to a hike or activity with the Scout Troop.

                      Thank you all for the warm welcome.

                      And I really like your projects! Very cool, I love hiking, it's just too bad the entire country I life in is as flat as a pancake.

                          Each has some symbolic connection to a hike or activity with the Scout Troop.

                          Found myself wonder if one of the slides involved a nearby girl-scout camp?
