A collection from a group of recently completed sticks that I cut down during the coldest part part of last winter. Species include Holly (which was a lot of fun to carve), Poplar (which is ALWAYS easy), and Dogwood (hard to carve and very dense, but hold a great detail).

Sizes range from 59” to 64” in length. 1.25” in diameter to 2” in diameter.

OK…shows are over with for a month or so, no classes to teach, no orders outstanding that can’t wait…I’m out of here for a few weeks one week fishing in the Keys, another in Central Illinois with some friends…vacation? whats that?

Take care and see y’all after I get a nice sunburn…

Good looking sticks. Not surprising, yours have more nice detail than most wood spirit sticks I’ve seen around. One more thing added to my to do list.

Have your say...
