New walking stick completed...

I've been working on this one for a while... It's from a piece taken from a sweet gum tree that came down in a storm.. the wood is very soft for carving, I also took a piece for cutting and making a chess set... Then James came along to show off his "baby" slowie that's the name he's chosen for each member of his growing collection of snails...

I am such a lurker, but had to come out and comment on that beautiful walking stick. Carving/whittling used to be a passion of mine and seeing your work brought back fond memories!

Cute snail! If James needs some more snails, he can come over to my garden and take the ones eating up my veggies. ;-)
The walking stick is cool! Love your work.

Great stick!! He looks like he was just hiding in there, waiting to come forth.. Glad you found him!!
Eww.. Snails!!! Had to eat one on Friday.. And it does not matter that they call it escargot!! Double-Yuck!!
