If whittling is a pastime you enjoy, try your hand at producing a miniature product!! This is a rifle I carved to look like one my dad had when I was a boy! (Here is my rifle with a penny for size reference)

Step 1: Carve Away!!

I am not a great artist, but I do enjoy whittling with a pocket knife from time to time. I start with a good carving wood such as mahogany. I start whittling without a specific outcome in mind, but look for something recognizable to start taking shape as I go. Once I see something I recognize in the rough work, it is easy to complete the item I see in the material.
