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.
In this video I’m carving a Rattlesnake Walking Stick. This one has an Eastern Diamondback climbing the walking stick with a knurled hand grip, and the words “WATCH FOR SNAKES” on the top.
Its been a long winter but the snow is finally melting back around the canyon. That gave me a chance to get out and do a little bit of hiking.
My next project is a wolf head walking stick with deer, elk, moose shed antlers on the shaft. It’s going to be a fun one!
I carved this knob-style cane from Oregon Juniper wood. It features a Sidewinder Rattlesnake, a Deer Mouse and a moth. It is completely carved out of a single piece of wood. It will be hand painted and coated with a protective polyurethane.
