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 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.
Hand-carved Copperhead Cane; made from a single piece of wood and Hand-painted. I really like the color pattern and the plate scales on the heads of these snakes. This guy definitely has a “don’t tread on me” look in his eye!
