Through my shop / studio I meet interesting artists and artisans. One of which is a flint napper and I have been selling his work out of my store front for a while now and he feeds my wood addiction by bringing back wood from his travels. Last year he brought me a log, he had no idea what it was and did not understand my excitement, but it was osage orange. We both admire each others work and agreed upon a trade. He would make me a obsidian knife and I would make him a wand. Well… this took me almost a year working on it only when I could. Enjoy.

Wow! Great carving job, I hear that Osage Orange is a very hard dense wood so that must have been difficult. Thanks for sharing

What an amazing job you did on this! the detail is just, wow!

Change the title to “So I made a deal with a flint napper…”, clicking on feather wand was a test of my manhood! lol

You have amazing skill and patience.

Very very nicely done . I hope the obsidian knife justifies the swap. Good to see your work my friend !

Excellent details. Way to fine for my eyes unless I used a lighted, magnification loop to look through. That small I’m not sure that would help.

Thanks for posting, and congrats on your 3.
