Mike Stinnett’s Q and A

Just thought I’d answer a few of the most frequently asked questions people have about my life and carving.

Hand Carved Rattlesnake Cane #61

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!

Redwood Trout Pendant

Here’s a little pendant we made out of some Redwood scraps.  It has some homemade Dogwood, beads and is hung with a tiny swivel.  My wife likes to help me and has made several different pendants like hummingbirds and sea turtles.  It’s been a fun addition to our home business. We sell them in our Etsy shop.
