As the Holiday season approaches, woodworkers have the ability to give pretty nice gifts, that are cheap and easy to make. here is my prototype for a letter opener. From this prototype, I learned not to use white oak for this type of carving, and also that if I hold my chisels perpendicular to the work, I can use them as scrapers.

In the future, I intend to make at least two more for gifts out of walnut and in a slightly different design.
