Here’s a video of my work in progress of the Massasauga Rattlesnake walking cane; hand carved out of a single piece of wood.
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.
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.
