He is my co-worker!
Mild mannered printing press operator by day, a man of few words...but a whittler extraordinaire by night!
The dictionary says: whittle;verb: to cut or shape (a piece of wood) by cutting small pieces from it : to make or shape (something) from a piece of wood by cutting small pieces from it
That is what the Whittler does, and this whittler is good!
Take a look at the details he carved into this piece of wood, which is part of a stool that he made.
