Snitte: The Danish Art of Whittling

Beautiful Wooden Birds to Make
Frank Egholm

Description

Snitte, Denmark's art of wood whittling, is a rite of passage for most Scandinavians, and the passion for it lasts a lifetime. Wood whittling's practical, outdoorsy nature has been married to fine craftsmanship in this beautiful book about creating wood-sculpted birds that can be left uncoloured and crisp as they are in wood or coloured carefully to make exquisite sculptures.

The book teaches even the beginner the basics of wood whittling a bird shape with step-by-step demonstrations (and templates for eight European birds), how to mount them elegantly on real pieces of wood, and how to paint them delicately to bring out their colourful beauty.

Whether you are new to whittling or are looking for a fresh project with your whittling skills, this is a perfect book to make something special and tap into the wonders of Scandinavian craft.
