I was looking through some of the pictures I have on Photobucket and found some more I thought may interest some of you. I'll post a bunch more in a separate thread, but here are two shots of this particular piece at an earlier stage.

That's really cool! Any chance you might stop a few times with the next one and snap a few pics along the way? I'd like to see what those chains look like mid-carve. Nice attention to detail!

Steve, that is just too cool, I have wanted to try carving the chain and ball but just haven't so far, you have inspired me to try. I am looking forward to seeing pictures of your work as you progress next time.

Right now I am whittling kitchen utensils, my wife wants me to make a ladle but so far I haven't found the right piece of wood. I made a large spoon out of bass wood and a spatula out of cherry, lot of waste in that one.

There is no whittling activity pin pin or belt loop for Cub Scouts for whittling. The closest is the "Craftmen" activity pin. There is, however, the so-called "Whittling Chip", which is a card the kids must earn and carry to be allowed to carry a pocket knife.

Last year I did teach a little whittling class to the Webelos den. But I chose a much simpler project for them to do. I don't know that any of the Webelos would have the patience, dexterity or hand strength required to pull off anything like what I'm showing here.

On a side note: at their meeting in two weeks I'm going to be teaching the kids how to make a monkey's fist knot.

Just a few more shots

It's not that I'm particularly proud of this piece, but I figured I'll show a few more pictures of it so you get a better idea of its flexibility and a better view of the cage.
