How to Whittle a Fox: Step By Step Guide With Pictures


This fun and easy gnome whittling project is perfect for beginners.

Here is what you will need to make the dog:

  • Sharp whittling knife
  • 4″ x 1″ x 1″ block of wood
  • Pencil
  • Leather strop

You can using a larger block of wood if you want to, but it will take longer to whittle.

Before starting, make sure your whittling knife is nice and sharp. It is always a good idea to hone your knife with your leather strop before starting to whittle. If you feel like your knife is starting to dull out while whittling, strop each side 10 to 20 times and continue.
