Years ago, I carved a Dragon about a foot in length. Also did a Chess Set...but it's long gone.. No time now...other interests.

My father was an artist,he did oil paintings.I. sent him a block of wood that I started to carve and lost interest.He mailed it back a week later. It was a beautiful Indian head. Pipe.I wish I had his talent.

I do some wood carving now and then. Made all my own carving knives. I like to pencil draw better, its easier than sticking a sharp knife in my hand.

I always wished I could wood carve/whittle .............. I have always admired, and appreciated, the finished pieces I have had the pleasure of seeing.

Hey Elton, it does not take talent to whittle, just a sharp knife and an enjoyment of one of the simpler things in life. About the only thing I whittle well is a point on a stick for roasting marshmallows. Now wood carving is an art. Lots of fancy tools and skill to carve, just a pocket by knife and a piece of wood to whittle.

Well .one has to be talented to see what they want in the stick their whittling on.... and yes woodcarving is an art for sure..

I have seen little wood cars, crosses, and other things whittled out of the sticks found laying on the ground.. Now just whittling to whittle is about all I could ever manage..Make small sticks out of bigger sticks ..:rofl:


Just look at that spoon your working on.......... You have the vision... !!

Love the wood carving also. I used to be involved with a carving competition put on by the Smokey Mountain Woodcarvers. The competition was held at Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, Tn. They had carvers from 13 differing states at one time. Do any of you carving enthusiasts remember anything about that? I was a participant in the early 90's.I had too many hobbies and loved them all........
