This walking stick was hand carved from a single piece of wood out of Red Cedar. I carved this staff with an added hand grip. This beautiful wood is in its natural color, I didn’t add any wood stain to it. I only applied a clear coat of polyurethane.
I carved this King Snake and White Oak branch with it’s leaves all out of a single piece of wood. It was a real challenge to bring all the leaves and stems together onto one branch.
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.
I am working on this double, snake stick with a King Snake below and a Rattlesnake on the top. In this photo I have refined the shapes and am ready to put on the scales.
Here you can see the scales have been added to the Rattlesnake.
Here’s the King snake with his scales. You can see the Rattlesnake on the opposite side of the stick.
In this new custom ordered project I am featuring two snakes. The Diamondback Rattlesnake will be curling back to view its predator. The King snake will be winding around beneath in pursuit of its prey. I hope you enjoy watching the progress of this project. I will continue to post progress updates and I plan to make a video for my youtube channel when this walking stick is finished.
