Wood Carving

A few months back, Tony took the boys to a gun & knife show.  There, the boys purchased a few knives.   I am a little nervous about my 7 & 10 year old having knives, but I am also a country girl that knows this is natural & healthy for boys & men alike.  I  had to pray about it & let God do the protecting & guiding while they use them.  

Will & Collin have been whittling a little bit.  Turning sticks into spears. :Another prayer goes up

Collin found this book at the library.  As soon as we got home, he wanted to start making something.  

We didn't  have a lot of tools for wood carving, so we started with something that we had....

There was a "how to" make a boat out of soap.  Let the whittling begin.
Using a knife, small screw driver & soap, Collin dug in.
I reminded them that "woodworking" was a long process & not a "hurry up & finish" project.


Will carving soap.  
Hopefully, we'll have finished pictures to show soon.

Side Note: This is probably not a good idea to do inside like we did.  There was soap dust flying everywhere.  At least it is clean.
