walking stick ,,, a day for carving (rain)
hi folks, i been trying to find some time to do some carving,,, i had another small load of my branches that someone got for me,, i looked at them and decided to try a walking stick for one,,, kinda like the branch guys,, so i took one and worked on it all evening, i will have to work on it a bit more,,, i had another cane here that i got in frankenmuth, mich at their show 4 years ago,, its half done,,, it was a cane made of basswood,, i just could not get my mind wrap around it,, and found it difficult to handle to carve,, and the wood is hard,,,, but this piece was green ,, what a dream , the bark came off easy in the areas i removed it,,, so i doing it for my mom , tulips are one it,, and i wanted something simple to carve for a few days,, ,, once it is done i will post a photo,,, this walking branch is tulip popular lol ( and i am carving tulips on it lol ) ,, i know this wood is not the norm for making walking sticks, its been fun to do ssomething new,, and i was ready to carve something,,, this happens when i dont carve a few days,,, its raining a lot today,, tropical storm coming up the coast ,, we dont get many of these in pa ,, but its still raining, ,, have a great day folks and happy carving, arleen
