First published in 1930, The Art of Whittling has provided readers with a wonderful introduction to the enjoyable hobby of whittling. This manual is still sought after by whittlers because it explains how to carve many items popular in American tramp art and more complicated items that are not included in most whittling books, such as continuous wooden chairs, hand tools, puzzles, balls inside spirals, swivels, entwined hearts, and buildings inside bottles.
