My latest work of art

Tres Rios, my latest stick. Turquoise, Green Opal, Brass Filings and Red Pipestone inlay on a piece of White Mountains Aspen. Finished with a hand-rubbed satin poly. Found near the Three Forks area. Each stick I make is blessed with the spirit of where it is found, and hand-crafted with loving care.

These look very nice and very unique, at the same time too nice for utilitarian purposes. Haha

No reason on earth that utilitarian items ought not to be beautiful, in addition to useful. Way too many beautiful but useless things out there, IMO. :)

. Aha I understand now the reason for the attention to detail in these beautiful sticks. Those guys lay them on the back seat of the rover, drive out to the edge of the forest,look around, then head back too a wine and cheese shop to plan for the next outdoor adventure. That is a perfect walking stick for them. Great job

This really looks nice, and it looks like you put a lot of love into it! I love how you have incorporated a colour that is a little more bright than the wood into it, it makes for a good companion to the wooden color.

So interesting and cool to see these. I appreciate a good walking stick. I enjoy camping and hiking; I am also a fantasy fan, who enjoys thinking about the "spirits of the woods" when I walk. As an aside, my father, who has always been an avid camper/hiker, seems to be taking an interest in tree spirit relief carving.

How do you manage to find good sticks? When I hike, I look for good candidates in downed branches, etc. I never take what is alive. My searches are 99/100 without success.

I do the same, but I look for areas where I am more likely to find the type of wood I am looking for. My sticks are always dead and down wood, it just takes too long to cure green wood.
