I had a request for a San Diego Mountain King Snake Walking Stick. It’s carved from a single piece of Lodgepole Pine and hand painted.
It’s been a busy year and a beautiful summer. Some of you already know, that I have been doing my best to grow my youtube channel with posts of my lifestyle and carving videos. Recently I started a Facebook page and I am on Patreon, too. I have met a lot of great people, online, and really enjoy hearing from them.
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.
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.
I’m showing the carving of this walking stick and also a little venture out into the countryside to find historical evidence of the Native Americans. Thanks for watching and I look forward to your comments!
