I was surprised to find this little gem this week.
I carved this at Summer Camp when I was in Boy Scouts - around 40 years ago!

It was a kit I bought at the Camp Trading Post, a square block of wood with a hole through it (for your Scout neckerchief), and a carving guide printed on it.
Lots of fun!

My latest project finished. First time with butternut wood, chips a little more than bass wood but the beautiful grain is worth it.

Thanks, I will post some of my other projects if there is interest. I know this isn’t a carving site, but wood and knives go hand and hand.

We will see, got about 3 weeks until his birthday. I was going to wait until Christmas but figured his birthday is close enough to Christmas.
