I finely got the green man I did months ago on a staff. It is a butternut carving on a sassafras staff. And it already has a new owner. There is a lot of color in the staff, browns, grays and greens. I will put a para cord lanyard at the base of the carving. I have one more coat of spar varnish to apply.

nice job

been looking forward to seeing the finished work

I only finish things when the mood grabs me now trouble is a lot of people are asking for more sticks even sending 3 interchangeable toppers to Australia now and have been asked for 2 walking stick handle cardigan style with a puffin and a mallard on the front , but I tell them I do not work to a time limit anymore .

Great looking piece Randy. Sassafras is getting to be one of my favorites to work with as well.. What did U use on the butternut to achieve the reddish color. Oil? Stain?

It had one good coat of Tung Oil when I finishe carving it. I think it was November. Once on the stick I finished it with 3 coats of spar urithane. I think it would look better if I had made the topper about a 11/2" to 2" shorter.. I think it is a bit to tall on the stick..

Same here Cobalt, my days of working to a deadline finished a long time ago, now it's done when it's done.
