  • Always carry a Big Stick

    Well gang, I may be down but I'm not out. I've given up the little people for a while and gone back to my fav, wood spirits. This one is on a piece of HARD maple that floated up on our lawn on last years spring flood and is it ever hard, but it sure holds detail well, as the eyes will tell ya. Bear in mind this is only an inch and a half piece of wood. Comments welcome and appreciated.

        For such a small piece of wood, you were able to give him a lot of detail Cliff. The grain is nice and dark which helps add to the look. Well done.

          Keoma, Forrest and Patrick, thanks for takin a look. It will eventually rest on the top of a walkin stick, as mentioned it was just a piece of junk wood that floated up on my lawn, but I will definitely attach it to a stick when I get more mobile and into my shop.

                      Very nice work Cliff, hard to believe it's less than 2 inches.

                        Nice work, Cliff! Is that 1.5 inches long, or 1.5 inches diameter? In either case, it's got a lot of detail.

                          Hey Claude, good to hear from you, It's 1 1/2 inch diameter and about 12 inches long. When I get well enough to work in my basement shop, I'll peg it onto a longer stick to make a walkin stick with it.
