    I have done thousands over the years and I just put a few on the site to show variations. I've done them in numerous variations, from inlays to plain sticks. I haven't updated the site in a few years and am trying to not do anymore, but they are custom and a costly stick still is attractive. Need more time to just carving. Thanks Denny.

      Rontana, as long as youre experimenting, had you thought for the next one to run an additional spiral matching in the opposite direction? I think you would end up with a " diamond or checkering" effect like on a gunstock carve. ?

        Bill - Thanks for the pyrography tips. I took a read of your site. Those are fantastic sticks!

        Denny - That's a great idea. Will likely give it a try

        And thanks to all for the kind words and encouragement

          I've heard the "Peppermint Twist" but I don't think I've heard the "Cottonwood Twist"...

          Nice stick, by the way!

            You did nice job on the twist stick. I've done a few of them in pine and basswood. I used 1 inch blue masking tape to lay out the lines. It's tedious but boy the results are worth it. Thanks for sharing.

              Thank you Rontana for a very interesting post, and by he way, I sure like your cane. Perhaps this post may get the creative juices working in me. Thanks for posting your picture.

                Bob . . . Those are fantastic. And, you're right. The time it takes is really worth the end result
