The purpose of a Whittle Doodle is to demonstrate what can be carved using only a knife in Whittle-Carving style. Doodling with a knife is an adventure of imagination shaping a block of wood with a variety of carving themes and subjects.

Two WHITTLE DOODLES are showcased here.

The first is a Miniature Whittle Doodle that received a blue ribbon in the Miniature Class competition of the recent International Woodcarving Congress. The block of basswood measures an inch and a quarter square by two inches tall with carvings of the four sides and chip carving on the top.

The second Whittle Doodle is a segment for a Friendship Cane that will be raffled at the Buckeye Round Up July 22 – 25 at Poor Farmers Campground near Piqua, Ohio. The block of basswood measures two inches square by three inches tall. A face is carved in each side of the four sided square with chip carving embellishing the side and top corners. [A visit to the CATEGORY “Whittle Doodles” will show a variety of Whittle Doodles that have been carved over the years.]
