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!

I carved this Rattlesnake cane from a single piece of wood.  The painting is complete and it is ready for stain to be applied to the remaining wood.  I will also be drilling a hole in the handle for a lanyard.

Those of you who have been following me for some time have seen that my family and I enjoy sharing my life and work in videos.   We appreciate all the encouragement that has been given and the expression, of some of you, to continue.  We enjoy hearing from you and look forward to all your comments.

If you would like to support me further I have started a Patreon account where I share updated  information and videos about my projects, life and work.  I will also be giving my first  full tutorial of the making of Rattlesnake cane #61 in a series of videos for my friends on Patreon.

I made this walking stick from a clear Cedar post.  I really enjoyed how easy the cedar carved and how well it took the stain.  I hope you’re all having a happy start to a great new year!

Out in the country, life is simple. I’d like to share some of the peaceful moments, the adventures and the projects of an old wood carver like me. That’s why I’ve become a member of Patreon. I’ll continue to put videos of my latest projects on YouTube, but for anyone who wants a behind the scenes look and maybe some tips and tricks about carving along the way, I invite you to come join me as I begin this new video series on Patreon.com/stinnettsticks
