That's pretty slick. You did a good job with the twist. I've wanted to do something like this for a snake cane but I get annoyed trying to keep everything spaced properly, proper depth. etc. That and the fact that it takes forever to get around the stick with the twist. It's the reason I haven't done many more snake canes.

Good job and I'll look forward to seeing your next one.

Wow! That is gorgeous. Great job, wish I had the patience to do something like that.
Thank you! I don't do it all in one sitting, you have to leave it for awhile (sometimes for days) and then come back to it -- it is very repetitious work.

Very nice job, wow. So is a good rasp all you need to complete the twist hand tool wise other than sandpaper?

Masking tape to lay it out, a rasp to cut the grooves, and a dowel to wrap the progressive grades of sand paper around as you use the dowel like you did the rasp.

Thanks Sean!

Wow,very very impressive....That looks awesome....Too much for me to tackle..lol...
Thank you! Naw! It's pretty easy -- and I'm not artistic like some of these other guys, like Bill (Lewey) so I have to keep it simple!

Ya I gotta keep it simple too...Thats why I stay to the distressed look,scalloping,notching, in straight lines....If I start going past North South lines it gets kinda weird.lol...Well East West(cross`s) are one of my fav.`s....

WTG on your designs brother.....
