These little sticks are a blast to make. It’s rewarding to take scrap and make something.
Woods used yellow heart, canary, purple heart, black walnut, and blood wood. They should make nice stocking stuffers.

Thanks for the view.
Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas

You have a lot of talent in this department Jim.

Those who are lucky enough to receive those items are going to have an automatic heirloom in their possession.

Hope you have a Merry Christmas as well.

If I had hair….. I’d be wanting me one of those. Hmmmm…. I suppose I could use it to skewer the olives at the bottom of the martini glass.

Really nice work Jim. You are definitely a highly skilled wood carver. Kudos!

You’ve done a really nice job on these. They should be very popular this year.

Thank you all for your gracious comments.
The fun never stops around here.
It seems I have been bitten by the carving bug and I must do something with it.
Although they are getting smaller each time….talk about level of difficultly, it’s what I love.
Ummmm besides LJ’s. ;-)
