My wife and I collaborated to make this intricately hand-carved walking cane. Using my wife, Brenda’s design, I enjoyed roughing it out in relief. She put the final details on it. It features a relief carving of wild roses with their leaves and vines. It’s is carved from a single piece of wood. The natural light color of the sapwood and darker tones of the heartwood were utilized to enhance the effects of this design. Only a high gloss polyurethane was applied and no stain was needed to bring out the beautiful grain in this piece. It is available in my shop on stinnettstudio.etsy.com.
I’m showing the carving of this walking stick and also a little venture out into the countryside to find historical evidence of the Native Americans. Thanks for watching and I look forward to your comments!
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.
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
