My youngest sister asked me to do her a staff similar to one of Gandalf's. So I gave it a shot.... GandalfStick2.jpg

Excellent! I've been looking for something like that! You have done a wonderful job --- are you going to embed a crystal?

Rad, yes.... I have the crystal, but my sister has the staff....about a hundred miles away from me. Did you notice the rune?

Rad, I actually got lucky, it was probably about the 3rd or 4th sapling I began uncovering the root system of. I really ought to do more staffs using the roots. They have a lot of character. Here's another one I did at a doctors request. 2012-07-28_18-51-46_726.jpg 2012-07-28_18-51-46_726.jpg

Very nice! I have dug up a lot of root stock for Shellalaigh construction -- the root make for a sturdy stick, but I haven't found any like your sisters stick yet -- what kind of wood was it (tree)?

I think both of these are what we call Ironwood here in south Arkansas. I think it is actually American Hornbeam.
