The Wood Bee Carver has been known to have carved miniatures as one expression of Whittle-Carving of using only knives to carve. Here are seven recent carvings of two inch miniatures that are now on display at Peter Engler Designs in Branson, MO.

Knives used to carve miniatures are small blades that have been reshaped especially for miniature carving of two inch tall figures.  The blades need to be super sharp and stropped often to maintain a pristine cutting edge.  The three photos below are the knives dedicated for miniature and fine detail carving.

Each miniature takes approximately two to four hours once the design has been imagined. Slicing cuts are the key to make small and precise cuts to shape and detail the carving so as to make clean cuts and not break the thinned areas.  Visit previous posting on miniatures by clicking on MINIATURE CARVINGS.
