This is a new idea, and a pretty fun carving. I attached a Pine knot to a maple stick. The joint is tenon/mortise, all thread and JB Weld. It’s not going anywhere. I’ve not seen anything quite like this :)

This walking stick/ cane is 32” long. The face is 11” long and 3 1/2” wide. The widest part of the stick is 1 1/2”.

I carved this fella’, as usual, using a Foredom with various bur accessories. A little paint was added to highlight the carving lines.

I call this whimsical sculpture, “Goofy Go Getter” and it’s available in my shop:

Always thinking. Always working. It’s another guy for the sprint family. LOL! Have you considered a hunting dog? Or a female companion for these woodsie guys!

Great job Josh, now you have someone to talk to while going for a walk. LOL
Love him.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Your carvings are so enjoyable to look at. They all have many stories I’d like to hear over a pint er two.
