It’s best to let a green wood piece dry for anywhere up to a few days to 2 weeks before doing any serious finishing work so I thought this to be a good time to keep the ideas flowing and hone on beginners skills. It’s surely an exercise of challenge and chance when axing down ...

I used wooden dowels and Titebond glue to join the carving to the stick. After the glue...
