You can easily get inspired fast by something that you see online or at your friend’s house but sometimes it’s not so easy to replicate once you are in your own workshop trying to figure out how that thing looked. For that exact purpose artistic people created patterns - things you can use for marking outlines on your work surface or follow to make sure you haven’t forgotten any details on it. Patterns are extremely important for novices in the whittling hobby since you are still learning and need some instructions and guidance to use. That’s why BeaverCraft has thought we could contribute to that a little and share some whittling projects easy - even for beginners. They are all packed together in our free newsletter that you can subscribe to if you desire to receive more than 50 whittling projects pdf on different topics and suitable for all levels of skill.


What are the most suitable
whittling projects for beginners?

There are a lot of options out there that you can choose from when you are in search of inspiration for a newbie. Many people prefer starting with something like wood spirits: these patterns allow you to both learn the general outlining and carving as well as getting the details on the wood to make your spirit look alive and with some character. However, if you don’t like the look of the patterns or are afraid to choose something that requires a lot of details, you may choose any animal figurine to carve out, some spoons, celtic decors and so on. Beginner carvers mostly adore love spoons as a project to dwell and improve on since it is a beautiful gift, a practical thing to create and can be changed with the course of time as you improve your talent and are able to add on more details and lines on the spoon. You may select a couple of whittling projects for beginners and go further from that.

Easy whittling projects pdf - how to use?

There are a couple of ways to use patterns pdf when you get them. The easiest is to print one out, glue it to the wood and carve like that. No need for drawing or experimenting, great option for someone who is doing their first projects or isn’t certain in their drawing talent. You can also draw the pattern which you chose onto the wood itself using pencils - you won’t waste any paper on that and will improve your drawing skill (or maybe you are already a skilled artist in need for some additional inspiration to catch).  Subscribe to that free newsletter, receive our whittling projects for scouts (who told you scouts can’t whittle?)  and get cracking - or, rather, let your wood crack as you carve it!

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
