  • Finished Man with a Braded Beard

    Started this Guy the First of the year and finally got him off the to do List. Had some doubtful moments for awhile but he worked out OK. Oh! Basswood Top , Diamond Willow Insert , and Cherry Shaft. Merle IMG_0004.JPGIMG_0006.JPGIMG_0008.JPGIMG_0010.JPG

          Looks like my beard was before the trimming. Great looking combination of woods. Different looks nice. Thanks for showing.

                      Hi Joe, I wasn't to sure till today about keeping him from the Scrap Pile. Had to change Colors and that made a difference , he is now staying with the other Sticks and Canes. Thanks Joe. Merle

                          That is a very good looking stick, Merle. Makes me want to take a hike, haha, well, it makes me want to finish a couple I have going...
                          Are you going to carve some more sticks?

                            Hi Randy , By using my Pieces of Diamond Willow it makes my Supply last longer ,it also brightens up the Stick. Another Malc Spour Idea with my touch. He helped me and doesn't know it . Thank you for commenting. Merle

                              Hi Kris, When I do other Cravings I always come back to Canes or Sticks because it Relaxes me and frees up my Imagination . Me do any more Sticks or Canes ? I'm Hooked and enjoy doing them . You get those Sticks finished and you'll see what I mean and maybe take a Hike. Ha,Ha. I always take all my Sticks for a Walk before I sell them or give them as Gifts. As I said before they are Addictive . Thank You for showing interest in my Stick. Looking forward in seeing your couple of Pieces. Merle
