A Lesson in Wood Carving

My sons had the opportunity to learn some basic wood carving skills today.  A gentleman by the name of John Sanders, a semi-retired Boy Scout leader and wood carver, among other things, taught a roomful of Homeschool students this fun skill.



Using a piece of foam and a plastic knife, he directed the children on how to carve an owl figure, a favorite bird of his.  He provided various slides outlining each step, and using his own cutting knife, demonstrated the process.




The final product was to look like this:
