This is a custom carving for Mr. Tyree. It is a Sassafras stick with the bark left on. Nature bent the handle for me, so the stick is exceptionally strong. I added a Fallow deer antler burr for the tip. I’ve not seen burrs used in this way before, but maybe I just haven’t looked hard enough :)
I carved this face using my Foredom power carving tool. Per my style, I added a bit of oil paint to accentuate my cuts. I finished this stick using Howard Feed ‘N’ Wax and a coat of satin urethane.

If I can be of any assistance to anyone…carving advice or anything else, I’d be happy to help.
