I made this stick for my father-in-law. He has a farm in East Texas and he is particularly fond of his cedar trees, so I thought I would make something for him from one that had been knocked over. I’m not sure what kind of cedar it is, but it carved easily. I tried to keep it fairly simple, in hopes that he might use it, rather than thinking it was “too nice” to use! We’ll see, I guess.

Nice one Mike. I feel the same way about stuff. It should be used, not just looked at

Handsome work, I’m sure he’ll be overjoyed to get it. If he balks at using it, tell him that he can bring it to meetings!

That’s beautiful work, Mike.
