The DANISH ART OF WHITTLING – SNITTE – Make beautiful wooden birds.
A fascinating practical introduction to the Danish art of whittling. With inspiration and instructions for making decorative wooden birds.
SNITTE, Denmark’s art of wood whittling, is a rite of passage for most Scandinavians, and the passion for it lasts a lifetime.
In this beautiful book, the practical, outdoorsy nature of wood whittling is married to fine craftsmanship . All about creating wood-sculpted birds that can be either left as they are, uncoloured and crisp or carefully coloured to make exquisite sculptures.
Written by a passionate Danish woodsman, Frank Egholm. This book teaches even the beginner the basics of wood whittling a bird shape with step-by-step demonstrations (and templates).
How to mount them elegantly on real pieces of wood, and how to paint them delicately to bring out their colourful beauty. From the familiar robin, blue tit and wagtail to the less common yellowhammer, the book has templates for eight European birds.
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.
