Fruit stone whittling

In lack of wood one can whittle small objects from fruit-stones. The stones are harder than most wood and must be scrubbed and dried before use. It seems like the natural shape and surface of the peach-stone lends itself well for monkey motifs.

    Seeing that you are interested in Peach Stone Carving, may I recommend this web site: Received a rave review from the X-acto knife co. for it's educational content. It's the only total guide book ever written on the subject.Great photos of carved pieces and detailed instructions on how to do it.
