This is a wood walking stick, hand-carved in a single piece of wood. This hiking stick makes a perfect wood gift and is very unique.
Everything in my shop is made by hand, by me, Josh. I don't have any elves or helpers. When you buy from me, you are helping to support my family. We really appreciate it :) When you buy something from an artist, you're buying more than an object. You're buying hundreds of hours or errors and experimentation. You're buying years of frustration, and moments of pure joy. You're not buying one thing, you are buying a piece of a heart, a piece of a soul.... a small piece of someone else's life.
"A Hard Pill to Swallow"... 57 1/2" long, 1 1/4" diameter.... Sourwood hardwood..
This is a very strong and unique stick!

TO SEE ALL OF MY AVAILABLE WOOD WALKING STICKS:
I include a certificate with all of my wood spirit and wood walking stick carvings. It just tells a little bit about me and adds some provenance to the work.
I have attached a rubber tip to the end of this stick. This helps to protect the stick and the surface that it touches.
I carved this fella' using tools similar to those of a dentist. There is a hand piece, foot pedal and hanging motor that I use with various cutters to create all of my sculptures. I like to add just a tad of oil paint to accentuate my cuts. This carving is finished with 3 coats of spray polyurethane.
Be sure to view all 5 pictures! You can zoom to see a larger image of the carving.

I really enjoy creating themed walking sticks such as Odin, Thor, Baron Samedi or many, many other possibilities. If you'd like a stick with bears, owls, or whatever else you might have in mind, just shoot me a message and we can discuss it.

My carvings can be cleaned using many different methods. A feather duster works nicely. Compressed air (duster or air compressor) also works well. If on a porch or indoors, my carvings will never need a new coat of sealer. Chainsaw carvings that are outdoors will need a fresh coat of sealer each year.
