Finished Mouse-topped Rattlesnake walking stick #29

After many hours of meticulous work, I am happy to have finished this walking stick.  It is carved completely out of one piece of wood.  I always celebrate when I manage to finish a walking stick with two subjects,  being concerned that I might make a mistake on one part or the other and ruin the projectfinished mouse 29

Mice are fun but troublesome.  Carving beady little eyes and getting everything symmetrical is quite a challenge.

  2. I have only just discovered your website. I clicked through after you left a “like” on Nick Hunters wordpress site. Nick is a friend of mine and I very much enjoy seeing his works in progress as much as the finished carvings. I have been knocked out by your work and this latest walking stick is wonderful. I’m sure I would appreciate it’s finer qualities even more in the flesh. What you do with wood is quite magical and it is a joy to visit your website. Thanks for documenting and sharing your work. Best wishes for 2015, Mr Cafe 🙂
