That is similar to wear I started a few years ago.
Here is a stick that I just finished for a guy in MA. I carved the Cobra staff out of maple and finished it with a black dye and deft. My carving started as a hobby and now is a small (very small business). More of my carvings can be found at www.handcarvedwalkingsticks.com and www.creationcarvings.com.
