Here is my latest walking stick, hand carved from a single piece of wood. This is a Green Mojave rattlesnake walking 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.
MIKE HEADS FOR THE HILLS ON A MATERIAL SEARCH AND FINDS SOME WILD EDIBLES ALONG THE WAY AND ALSO SHOWS HIS CARVING OF RATTLESNAKE CANE #65.
Please educate yourself before eating any wild plant and be very sure that you know that what you’re eating is edible.
The weather has been so cold, lately, that I have had to do a lot of work indoors which has brought on a serious case of cabin fever! The only cure I know for that is to get out in the country. This video shows the making of a carved wooden cane with the Rattlesnake in the “ready to strike” position. It is carved from a single piece of Pine.
I’m in the process of uploading a series of video tutorials on the making of this cane for those who support me for $5 or more on https://www.patreon.com/stinnettsticks. I really appreciate the support which helps me be able to keep making videos. A “Great Big Thanks” to all you Patrons, Youtube subscribers and WordPress followers!
