This is a stick I got from Smoky Mountain Woodcarving. I did not know when I ordered it that they had a finish on them. It is a bit of a pain to clean it all off and refinished. but the have a nice shape and dry, I love the color and look of a cedar stick and cane. How ever carving it can be a challenge.

Had some time this week to work on this. I will surround the face and back of the top of the cane with leaves.

Just a bit of clean up to do the finish. I am waiting for some Waterlox marine tung oil I order.

Yes Rad, waterlox is higher than some but it is worth it to me. I have used it for years. I love tung oil as a finish. Many do not. It is a bit more work. On some woods it darkens more that other finishes will. But It is one of the best protectants. I have had a lot of good results using the marine tung oil on out side projects, sticks and canes.
