Let’s Carve!: Safe and Fun Woodcarving Projects for Kids

We rated this book:


Let’s Carve! Safe and Fun Woodcarving Projects for Kids by Robin Trudel is a great starting point for kids who have an interest in carving and woodworking. The projects themselves are designed for kids aged four and up, and they use simple tools. The directions are laid out with lots of step-by-step photos and written instructions, so they are easy to follow.

The author starts with an introduction to word carving, succinctly laying out the tools your child will need to make the projects in later chapters. He then continues with a chapter on safety, which is important to learn from the very beginning. The book includes photos that demonstrate both the right and wrong ways to do certain things, which is very helpful in demonstrating the importance of safety to young readers.

The projects range from really simple to much more complex, and they include a clothespin chomper, finger puppets, personal items such as hair combs, dolls, and stick animals. Most of the projects include a simpler, more straightforward version as well as alternative ideas that use more advanced skills.

Let’s Carve! Safe and Fun Woodcarving Projects for Kids is a great book for beginner woodworkers!
