Canebrake Timber Rattler

On my latest walking stick it was requested that it be a Canebrake Timber Rattle Snake in the yellow phase. I added a checkered hand grip. This was carved out of one solid piece of wood and hand painted. A coat of high gloss polyurethane brings out the rich color of the Redwood.

    • Thank you, Michael! I’m learning checkering from a gunsmith friend of mine. It’s kind of tricky to checker a round shaft, and get all the diamond lines to match up. I was pretty relived that it worked out. It gave the stick a good grip and feels good in the hand.

    • Hello, Jeff! Good to hear from you! I’m alive and well, just been really busy, lately. I’ve got some really exciting walking stick projects lined up for years ahead. I’ve taken a little time this spring to spend outdoors, hunting morel mushrooms. But I’m back at carving, now. I guess some people just don’t like snakes! 🙂 hahaha! Take care of yourself, my friend, and thanks for checking in!
      Mike
