Sitting on edge, with nerves trembling, and idle hands in a state of total boredom, I began to scout out my next project.
I live within the boundary of a state park here in north central Florida, and there is certainly NO scarcity in a piece of wood , or a nice stick, as this area is just inundated with Scrub, Sand, and Red Oak, with eastern red cedar trees, and even some rare Redwoods (I will be behind bars lest i touch one of those ).
Wandering aimless, i turn and walk 500 feet towards the ranger station shed house, and against the shed, lie this astounding 6' tall old fellow you see in the photos.
Long gone the years this guy had fell, and there he lay also some forelorn years. Cracks in the bottom, the curve if his head cracked and hole ridden... But still, strong bones remain. Just a bit of surgery on my part with some wood compound, and voilá!
I was in love with this stick the moment i saw it.
I have MANY MANY ideas floating...
What do you all think?? What could I do for starters? Humour me!
