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!

Rattlesnake Walking Stick #60



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!

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.

Western Diamondback Rattlesnake and Chipmunk Walking Stick

A Whopper of a snake; this rattler is 5 ft long and has 12 rattles, too!  A little Chipmunk sits atop with a pebble in his hands.  I  have this in my  Etsy Shop for sale, today.


Rattlesnake Walking Stick #40 with a Fence Lizard

I had a lot of fun carving this little fence lizard which was a custom request.  He is looking over his shoulder at the snake climbing up behind him.  Lizards have always been one of my favorite creatures and I hope to carve more of them.  I carved this entire stick and it’s subjects out of a single piece of wood and hand painted it.

Cornsnake Walking Stick

I just finished this big Corn Snake on a small walking stick which is hand carved from a single piece of wood.   This was an enjoyable stick to make with it’s brightly  colored pattern.  I’ll be putting this for sale in my Shop.
