Hello everyones,

Here's some pic of what I,ve found last week.This maple tree was still grounded but dead. i've cut the bottom (head) and shaped a head, the rest is mother nature. I have no talent in carving has u can see but i'm keep practicing.....bye for now.

Frank.

Great looking stick as is. But automatically see all kinds of carvings to be done with it.

Thanks all. In this kind of deformation or tumor there's 90% of the times nothing interesting in these maple tree. maybe in USA it,s another thing.

My favorite wood here is the stripped maple. I think this is the only tree here in Quebec that you may find with nice curve for the handle. The rest you need to be very lucky or cut the tree ar the root but most of the times the stick is not straight. I do not know if you have stripped maple in US..?

I could like the stick as is.... With the bark stripped.... Or, with the burl carved into something of your choice.... Lots of potential.
