Wild Roses Cane

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.

Rattlesnake “Ready to Strike” Cane

I was able to get creative with the shape on this snake cane.  I used a larger piece of naturally crooked pine which gave me the space I needed to put the snake’s head in a striking position.  I will show the process of making it in an upcoming video.

Rattlesnake Walking Cane #39

I Just finished this Rattlesnake walking cane.  With his chin resting on the handle, he appears to be a guardian, ready to strike.  He’s hand carved out of one solid piece of wood and then hand painted.
