I just started another thread on this topic to solicit ideas from others.
My boys and I go on hikes weekly and it often involves fire building and or carving. We have done a lot of projects together. I love using my knives for no good reason other than to play with them (and carving/whittling is perfect for this).
Off the top of my head, I can think of a few projects I have done.
Pendants (hearts, diamonds, spades, still need to do a club)
Animals (birds, horses, snakes)
Wood spirits (basically an old guys face carved into the side of a stick or log...hopefully so it looks like a spirit pushing out of the wood).
Perhaps a few other things.
I will post up photos as I find some. My stuff is pretty scattered these days...I need to get organized.
Here is a video I did a while back...I will post more in my thread
