My latest stick

1380 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  cobalt
I would like to share my latest effort with forum members. The topper is stripy gum and the stick is river oak. Spacer is buffalo horn of course. I gave the bark a light sand and took the branch cutoffs right back to bare. Used Carbothane to seal.

The stick has aged only 3 months (we'll see what happens there). Note the pics were the right way up before attachment!

Anyway, here it is...

Brown Wood Natural material Wood stain Metal

Hi Mick, Well done. Nice looking topper.
I like it! It will be interesting to see if it does any more shrinking.
Its a well balanced thumb stick,the buffalo horn space gives the shank that bit extra,

The shape is very good with a nice finish and a good contrasting shank

See you use a power file to shape the buffalo horn it can be a aggresive tool but very handy for bone as well

good one
