Looks good!Maybe you could make another round tenon on the top and glue on a carved handle with a mortise?

What do you have to do now to make it into a “Finished Woodworking Project”?

Sand it down and apply a coat of mineral oil on it, I might add a brass ferrule on the bottom as well to keep the wood from getting damaged.l. On other sticks that I have made I have also drilled a hole in the end of the bottom and added a small bolt and sharpened it to a point to use when walking on ice.

Have your say...
