Two heads are better than one. This is a Butternut Topper I have been playing with. I am not happy with the transition between the two heads or the bear's fir. I have some corrective work to do in those. I will do some western decretive carving on the walking stick staff. Not sure what yet.

I like the concept Randy. Is it comfortable to grip?

It is a too thck to hav a comfortible grip. It will be a topper for a walking stick I think. I have a maple stick I think I will use. I saw a stick Mike Stinnett did were he carved antler rack down the staff. I think I am going to give that a try.

One of these days, I'm gonna sit down with a stick of wood and try to carve like that. It sure is neat. We just returned from a deer hunting trip in South Arkansas. No deer harvested, but harvested about two dozen sticks. My stick inventory is starting to build up.

Incredible carving. Have you considered something like and inlay transition?

I think that transition would be tricky for anyone. You're up against two different textures and directions for the feathers and fur. The fur on the bear looks great to me.

It's a great looking topper.
