A couple of weeks ago I went on a 4 day excursion with my Father in law. We were near a site where they had done some strip lumbering. Basically they push everything down and then harvest. I found a few nice sticks with root balls attached. They had been sitting for about a year so they had some cracks and wear, but still decent sticks. I took that time to sketch one and bring the others home.
First pic is my view and then my WIP with a couple of coats of tung oil.
I call carving without reference a 'sketch', basically just working on hand skills and blade use.
I'm going to finish it with some leather and a copper ferule (reducer from lowes) and give it to one of the guys on the trip for Christmas.
