The Making of Carved Snake Stick 55

Copperhead Cane 55

I’m happy to have completed my 55th walking stick.  This one is a Copperhead cane which was carved out of a single piece of Lodgepole Pine.  I like the beautiful pattern on Copperheads and enjoy making them.

Eastern King Snake Walking Stick

I carved this King Snake and White Oak branch with it’s leaves all out of a single piece of wood.  It was a real challenge to bring all the leaves and stems together onto one branch.

Canebrake Rattlesnake Walking Stick #51

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.
