I had really high hopes for this ash stick when I collected it since it had a really interesting tangle of roots. (It is circled in red on the first pic) But when I got digging around in them, I found that most were rotten. I removed most of the rot and was left with an odd-looking cane which was not very comfortable to hold. I set it aside thinking maybe I'd put a new handle on it someday.

Fast forward a year or so and I got looking at it again and thought, Hey, that kind of looks like a snake which is twisting in anger at being grabbed. So that's what I'm going to try. Won't be a full Mike Stinnett snake with all the scales and paint job, just a stylized one.

That is a great beginning for a snake! I look forward to seeing it progress. Nice find.

I finished the cane yesterday. Turned out pretty nice, I think.
