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!
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.
This is a walking stick which my wife, Brenda, carved from a piece of driftwood. She has meticulously carved autumn leaves and rose hips on a winding bramble. I am so proud of her. This can be found for sale in my etsy shop.
Here’s a video showing my latest, copperhead snake walking stick. It was carved entirely from one piece of Lodgepole pine and hand painted. I also took a walk in the hills to find some wood for future projects.
It’s been too cold to work outside so I spent the week, in the studio, making a new walking stick. I finished it today. The blue color behind the stick is snow. I have combined several pictures of it in one image to show all sides of the snake. This was sold in my etsy shop.
Here are some of the walking sticks and their dimensions which I have recently made. All of these sticks are carved from a single piece of wood, stained and painted. Each walking stick is signed and numbered in the order in which they are created. These are all sold, but others can be found in my etsy.com shop.
