Hi Karen from the USA, I would recommend the Grange and Links Hotel, Sandilands, Sutton-on-Sea for a place to stop and a lovely area to explore Lincolnshire, also I am local if you decide to visit for a bird whittling demonstration.


Thank you for your email Dean and yes I do other bird whittling packs but would advised that you start with a Nuthatch Whittling Pack, if this is your first whittling project, rather than the Blue Tit,  Read more and find new whittling packs

Whittled in the past

I am always being asked what other birds I have whittled in the past that were challenging, so here is a example:- a whole hand was whittled with a Stanley knife, from a block of lime and the bird added later.

It was done as a wedding present for my niece.
