Carole Williams created a composite photo of the various views of the CCA Whittle Doodle Trade Piece. The way that she combined the various views has emphasized the multiple faces carved into a block of basswood. She is a true artist with the computer and Photo Shop wizardry. Thank you Carole.

WHITTLE DOODLE ~ Redux Art

   Posted by: woodbeecarver

Whittle DoodleA Whittle Doodle is doodling with a knife to decorate a block of wood with free hand Whittle Carvings. Since it is doodling there is no preset plan or overall design for the random carvings done to fill in the spaces in a block of wood. There is a combination of a variety of carved faces and free hand chip carving all done in the Whittle-Carving style. The Whittle Doodle was carved into a two inch cube of basswood and finished with Raw Sienna artist oil paint color thinned with boiled linseed oil followed by an application of Deft, a brushing lacquer and then Howard Feed N Wax.

   Posted by: woodbeecarver

Whittle Doodle The photograph of the WHITTLE DOODLE is presented here as an introduction to a special contribution by HELVIE KNIVES. Each year Rich, Holli and Skylar Smithson of Helvie Knives make a significant contribution to a charity raffle by providing a presentation box of Helvie knives as the raffle prize.

This year, 2015, they will donate all the WOOD BEE CARVER Signature Knives made by HELVIE KNIVES in a cherry presentation box decorated with the art work of Don Stephenson that is wood burned by Rich Smithson. The WOOD BEE CARVER has carved a commemorative Whittle Doodle to be included with all the knives in the presentation box. In the very near future an official announcement will be made about the recipient of the charity gift as well as information of how to purchase raffle tickets and the date of the raffle drawing.

Thanks to the Smithson family for their generosity of love and compassion in this very unique way of sharing the heart and soul behind their knife making business. HELVIE KNIVES.
