This is a hair stick, usually balanced in a woman’s coif, i.e. pony tail, bun, etc. My wood supplier was closing his business so he gave me his scrap wood. This piece of wood came from the rockers of an old rocking chair. Unfortunately I forgot the name of the wood species but will tell you it was hard and brittle – a carver’s curse!! Ipe comes to mind.
I power carved it in less than a day and finished it with wipe-on poly.
