    Hello my first post here and new to carving. My avatar is my first two attempts at caving, Thank You Bob K and Doug Outside. So not to stray from this thread is Lilac or Mulberry good to whittle? I have a Lilac bush that needs to come out next spring to make way for a woodshop/carving shop and a few volunteer Mulberry trees that need to go. Is this wood to hard? Thank You David.

    It definitely falls into the "Whittling of Twigs and Branches" category. I suggest that you attempt to obtain a copy of Chris Lubkemann's, Whittling Twigs & Branches - 2nd Edition.

    I've had the first addition of the book since I originally started whittling and it's a lot of fun.

    Maybe Pinocchio's grandparents?
    I had to work with a couple of those = they had their noses into everything
    but their own business.

    Caricature carvings of "branch-people" if they need a name.
    Wonderful design concept.

    Nifty idea! Seems like "stick whittling," rather than carving to me. Someone should know though. Thanks for sharing that.
