Whittling with Dave

I had asked for the Flexcut carving Jack for Christmas. And I do love it. Now I have woodworking in my pocket.
I will now keep a few pieces of basswood on me for whittling little projects for the grand kids. The flexcut knife has most of the tools in it for small projects all the way to carving spoons.

I also got a few exotic wood peen blanks and made some carving knives out of broken pen knives. Its handy to have a few on the bench for marking and sweetin up a corner in joinery.

As the hollidays went on I tried some wee people carving, ole man faces and larger projects of owls and trees.

I do recommend this skill for for and practice. Get a carving glove. Believe me. I bleed a lot and its a cheep safety factor. Go looking in the hunting section of stores around the fillet knives.
I would like to give a huge shout out to
Old Sneelock’s Workshop
He is a great friend and has helped my channel out a lot. He just had a milestone on his YouTube channel and has sent me a wonderful Miller Falls Breast Drill. The drill is in presteen condition and will be dearly loved and taken care of. Thank you again Snee!!!!!!
Now as yall all know this is a VLOG with out further adieu……

I wish you all a safe and Happy New year!!!!!
I love you guys over at the Stumpy mega thread. I think of all of you often….and Randy to…..

Please be careful. Some of the things I do are dangerous. It is not my fault if you get hurt. Use your brain, be safe.
