Whittling vs. Carving: The distinctions, if any, are sought
M.E. Lewis, seeking Total Assimilation, wants to more about this sacred tradition of Adair Co., KY
I was just wondering if there are any whittlers left in these parts?
I thought if there were, we could have some at the Downtown Days around the square.
When one whittles, does one make any thing from the piece of wood or does one just shave the wood off and make wood shavings?
Is it just something they did as they told stories?
Are whittling and carving two different things?
I am not from these parts and did not grow up around people who whittled.
s/Maury E. Lewis
There are still whittlers. I think your idea of incorporating Whittling into Downtown Days is a Eureka moment. Maybe for Buy, Swap, Sell, or Trade Days, too. But these other questions are so deep, so profound, that they are stratospherically over my head. However, within the vast CM community, surely someone can summon the wisdom of the late varmintologist, Dr. Billy Neat, DV, and give the answers you seek, forthwith. All answers will be appreciated, even if they are not in verse. -EW
