Because it’s always difficult to photograph a carved walking stick here’s a video -
Starry night walking stick
I’m still experimenting & learning with what woods are good to carve. So This stick is made from Apple tree. It was easy to carve but not for finer detail. I initially started to carve the “working on the land” stick however the chains were to small and kept chipping out. So the stick was put aside until I thought of something more suitable to carve onto it.
Someone mentioned stars, – as they are a solid shape I thought it possible & tried them. It all went well with only minor mishaps.
All stars large and small have been carved. The smallest ones have been carved “into” the wood. While the larger ones have been set out.
It was then painted with watered down blue paint ( white was kept normal) and sealed with shellac to keep the whites white then coated with poly.
Now I have to find someone who wants to buy it !
