The heat and humidity have finally let up and I've managed to get into the shop. Started this stick a couple of months ago and getting back to it.
It's a gardening themed stick. It was going to be just a regular maple cane but I decided to have some fun and get some more practice on carving. It's basically a string of vegetables. Haven't decided what the handle will be, but where it goes from handle to shank is going to be a yellow crook-neck squash, followed by an ear of corn,then an egg plant, some string beans, something I haven't decided on yet (thinking maybe a grouping of peas), then a turnip, a pumpkin, a watermelon, then maybe a potato, beet and a carrot for the tip.

Check her out and see what you think so far.

Maybe for a follow up, I'll do a carnivore's stick. Turkey leg, t-bone steak, slab of bacon, rack of ribs, sausage, crown roast of lamb, a whole roasted chicken, etc.

As it happens, I had an idea for a stick a while back which would fit that bill. It would be an ice cream cone with 20+ scoops for the shank, the cone itself as the tip and a scoop for a handle.

Taller than this obviously, but you get the idea.

Got some more coloring done on the veggie stick. Went with swiss chard for the handle, then the crook neck yellow squash. The clump of peas I'd envisioned became a pea pod, followed by a turnip. Probably add a potato maybe a beet then a carrot for the tip.

LOL!!! That's a great idea, Randy. I have a really chunky apple handle blank somewhere. Stick it on a maple shank carved like scoops of ice cream. I think the blank was T shaped, as well, so I could carve one side to look like an ice cream scoop and the other to be a piece of pie.

Up here in Maine, though, the thing you have with apple pie is a nice wedge of extra sharp cheddar cheese. It's a regional thing. Everywhere else I've been, people think it's weird.

Karštis ir drėgmė pagaliau sumažėjo ir man pavyko įeiti į parduotuvę. Pradėjau šią lazdą prieš porą mėnesių ir grįžau prie jos.
Tai sodo tematikos lazda. Tai buvo tik įprasta klevo lazda, bet aš nusprendžiau pasilinksminti ir šiek tiek pasipraktikuoti drožinėti. Iš esmės tai virtinė daržovių. Neapsisprendžiau, kokia bus rankena, bet nuo rankenos iki blauzdos eis geltonas moliūgas, ant kurio bus kukurūzai, po to-kukurūzų ausis, tada kiaušinių augalas, kai kurios pupelės, ko aš neturiu dar nusprendė (galvoju gal žirnių grupę), tada ropę, moliūgą, arbūzą, tada gal bulvę, burokėlį ir morką.

Patikrinkite ją ir sužinokite, ką manote iki šiol. View attachment 27877 View attachment 27878 View attachment 27879 View attachment 27880

Finally got the rest of the coloring done and a coat of poly on this one. Color ran a bit in a couple of places but it'll be easy to fix. Starting at the handle are a couple of Swiss chard leaves, then a yellow crook-neck squash, ear of corn, egg plant,bunch of string beans, a pea pod, turnip, pumpkin, watermelon, a russet potato, a strawberry, a blueberry, a head of leaf lettuce, and finally, a carrot.
