Here's some pictures of my work for those that are not familiar with it. I have been a wood carver for around 30 years as a hobby and makng sticks for a couple of years. i made my first stick for my brother who was very ill at the time, he's sadly no loger with us but it stayed with me and I kept making them and improving on the craft. I mainy do dog toppers on a commission basis but will have a go at anything that interests me.

I have made quite a few for customers in the USA but carriage is costly. Wood Sleeve Twig Waist Natural material Wood Fawn Human leg Tail Carmine Glasses Sunglasses Wood Toy Fawn

not sure why the pictures are sideways!

Some very fine work there. When you have a moment, you should check out one of the older threads called Interchangeable Toppers started by Cobalt. It's about 8 topics down on the Homemade Walking Stick page. As a topper carver, you might find it interesting.

I like that thumbstick with the built in whistle. Is the brass a kit you can buy or did you make it?

Thanks, I'll check out the interchangeable tops. The brass tipped thumb stick was home made but the whistle was bought in. It's a two piece stick with a screw joint and brass ferrul on the tip. The shank is fumed Chestnut.
