Stick 69 Red Cedar Chief

This walking stick was hand carved from a single piece of wood out of Red Cedar. I carved this staff with an added hand grip. This beautiful wood is in its natural color, I didn’t add any wood stain to it. I only applied a clear coat of polyurethane.

Carved Redwood Eagle Pendant Necklace and Carved Serpenting Stone Arrowhead Pendant Necklace

Sometimes it’s fun to make a quick project.  I really enjoyed carving this eagle pendant out of Redwood.  I utilized the natural color of the wood and did not use any stain.

Wild Roses Cane

My wife and I collaborated to make this intricately hand-carved walking cane.  Using my wife, Brenda’s design, I enjoyed roughing it out in relief.  She put the final details on it.   It features a relief carving of wild roses with their leaves and vines. It’s  is carved from a single piece of wood. The natural light color of the sapwood and darker tones of the heartwood were utilized to enhance the effects of this design. Only a high gloss polyurethane was applied and no stain was needed to bring out the beautiful grain in this piece. It is available in my shop on stinnettstudio.etsy.com.

Carved Wolf Walking Stick #63

 

Watch For Snakes

CARVED FROM A SINGLE PIECE OF WOOD

In this video I’m carving a Rattlesnake Walking Stick. This one has an Eastern Diamondback climbing the walking stick with a knurled hand grip, and the words “WATCH FOR SNAKES” on the top.
Its been a long winter but the snow is finally melting back around the canyon. That gave me a chance to get out and do a little bit of hiking.

My next project is a wolf head walking stick with deer, elk, moose shed antlers on the shaft. It’s going to be a fun one!
