So pleased, not with the actual carving of the stick but this is my very first commission for a walking stick. AND Looks like there might be more to come.
This is another Yellow Box, branch/ stick picked up out of the paddock and carved. Sealed with 30% diluted shellac. Painted lightly to obtain depth on carvings, stained, and wiped a couple of times with a satin poly.

Very difficult to show carving in a small round surface so here’s a video ( not a good one , but nonetheless a video )

Video of stick .

Very, very nicely carved! I’d wager you will see more commissions based on the quality of this piece. Congratulations on a job well done.

Wow, Theresa, you have come along. That’s a great walking stick and I agree with Hillbilly^.

Thanks guys for the encouraging and supportive comments.
I’ll see what I can do about the video. It works for me, so you must have to be on Facebook.

That’s a good looking walking stick and a great conversation piece. It could also be used as a good defensive weapon if needed.
