Whittle Dwarfs  are whimsical whittlings that are primarily all head with the semblance of a squatty body and small feet left to imagination.  Whittle Dwarfs  begin as an inch square by an inch and half tall block of basswood.  Their eyes are covered with a hat showing a nose protruding from under the hat.  The rest of the face can be carved with a variety of mustache and beard styles as well as some with a toothy grin or a mouth carved with various expressions.

Whittle Dwarfs  are a fun way to carve a variety of faces with the challenge to carve no two alike.  They are finished with Howard Feed N Wax.   The photographs offer a variety of faces for inspiration to carve Whittle Dwarfs  in a style all your own.
