I found this piece of root in the woods, I am not sure what type of wood, but it looks like it may have been from a bush (Yew?), that have been cut an discarded. I put my 35yr old cowboy hat to show where/ size.It is not really heavy, as it would be bulky try to carry about 5 blocks up hill.
In this pile of wood that would make for nice Caduceus, there is also was one natural wood snake, on topTo the Left is Project Maple, which I took along to break in.
I went hunting for Caduceus in the woods near the Jordan Creek again today 07/25/14.I found 8 pieces of wood suitable for Caduceus. I also found a piece of vine that already looks like a snake, which will make for a nice app for one of my Wild Caduceus.
I went to the woods near the Jordan Creek, Allentown PA, an hunted for some Caduceus for carving, I found Project #666, and found the piece of wood in the photograph (end/ bottom)

Well, As I work towards finishing a run of Adirondack chairs I’ve chosen to put the power tools aside for a while except for needed home repairs. It’s time to simplify. Time to quiet down my woodworking. I want to focus on building larger pieces 99% to 100 by hand. I’m still debating on the table saw issue. Time for creative challenges instead of obsessive production, stress, and the shrills of power tools all day. My new goals are larger historic furniture piece...
Cant believe that it is over a year since a blog. Mads has been to Scotland andis back in a few days :) I’m as usual backed up with orders, not that effects mytime out to create.Now that is the pita that causes the backlog.
