The Art of Whittling Walter Farout Many of the same projects and techniques from Tangerman’s book above, but better illustrated and described. The focus is more on puzzles and tricks but a good resource

Chris Lubkemann’s book is the clearest, simplest beginners book and has the best treatment of choosing, modifying and sharpening a pocketknife suitable for whittling. Lubkemann concentrates on easy projects made with sticks – perfect for a leisurely afternoon in camp. Start with Lubkemann if you are a true beginner but more advanced whittlers will find good ideas and techniques too. Making a rooster from a forked stick is a great way for Scouts to practice knife skills for tote-n-chip.

Cub Scouts love to get their pocketknives out and strip bark from fallen sticks. Why not make it into a project? They can strip the bark from a large sturdy stick and then sand it to make a hiking stick. Make sure they have their Whttlin’ Chip cards handy and are following the rules when they do that. You will have to do some work ahead of time to find some sticks which are appropriate for this project.
