  • Question: How to display a woodspirit?

    Suppose you've got a woodspirit that isn't carved into a walking stick. How would you display it? Hang it by a string? Mount it on a stand? What kind of stand? Flatten the back and make it a wall hanging?

    Of course a lot will depend on the size. What about something 6" long and 2" in diameter?

    Inquiring minds (mine!) want to know!

    Any and all suggestions welcome.

    I think it might look good hanging from a leather cord, or I would flatten the back if possible and hang it directly on the wall. All of the ones I have done were hung directly on the wall.

        I've only carved one - and it hangs on the wall.

          Hi Bob, Akll my Woodspirits are on Sticks, but 1 . I mounted it on a Base with a Triangle wedge on the back at angle. I rested it on the tip of his Beard and leaned it back and glued it to the Wedge. My Son-in-law has it on his desk and seems to like it. Merle

            Fix it to your front door.

              Good question, so far I have just left the bottom of mine flat and just let them sit that way. Never thought to make wall hangings.

                I hang my mine on the wall. I either drill an angled hole and carve it a bit( thanks to suggestions from folks here!) or pre-drill 2 small holes and use screw eye hooks with a wire between them. I put wood glue into the pre-drilled holes before I screw in the eye hooks.

                  Hi Bob:
                  Most of my woodspirits are flat on the back with a picture hanging hardware. I run a little bead of glue onto the screw which help secure the screw into the Cottonwood. Before I started using glue I have some screws come out of the soft bark. Now I don't worry that one might come out of a sold piece.
