      Re: walking sticks

      Hi Dave, Like the look of them, especially how you can change the 'theme' by changing the hat. It makes them saleable in a wider market. On the painted ones... are they part of one stick or are they added to the stick like a topper? On the unpainted one... did you paint the stick before carving the face or is that natural bark?

                  I really like how you've gotten the beards to look so natural! Great 'hair' work! I like the way you got the basswood to match the sticks in color. Very nice.

                    Nice walking sticks Dave and I really like your logo also. The fireman is real interesting. Was it made for a fireman customer? Are hiking sticks popular in your area? I made a few this Winter to dabble with something new, but people in my area don't seem to interested in them. Maybe it's because of the flatland prairies and no one goes hiking in cow pastures? Keep up the good work....

                      mojavezig-the fireman was is the first fireman i made, i done it because a friend said i should do one of a fireman, he's for who ever wants to buy him and give him a home. i sell about 24 of these sticks a year here in my area and about 24 - 30 of the wood spirit sticks i do 3-4 art -craft shows a year
