Odds and Ends

I enjoy finding items that I can make from the ends of my walking sticks. The stool sample and belly button lint brush are two of the most popular items. They make great white elephant gifts!

Carving Goose Eggs

I traveled to Provo, Utah last weekend to take a class on carving eggs. We were given goose eggs to work with and it was definitely different carving eggs instead of wood!

Latest Carving

It has been a slow Sunday and I got my hands on a sweet potato. I am told that they shrivel and look really cool after a few days. Has anyone ever tried this? Does anyone know what kind of finish to put on a sweet potato?

Barking Parties

When you have a hobby that involves carving several thousand walking sticks, you have to figure out a good way to get all the bark off those sticks. "Barking Parties" have become a family activity that even the grandkids enjoy.

Gun Stock Carving

My latest hobby

Pumpkin Carving

I wanted to try something new last Halloween, so I made a woodspirit pumpkin. I think it turned out great!
