Carved Wolf Walking Stick #63



Watch For Snakes


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!

Canebrake Timber Rattler

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.

Wild Rose Bramble Walking Stick by Brenda Stinnett

  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.



Carved Copperhead Snake Walking Stick

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.

Rattlesnake Walking Stick #20

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.
