I make a bunch of walking sticks and canes. This is a bit of both. Taller than a cane, maybe a short walking stick. Carved from a Mountain Lural that had a vine wrapped around it. This project forced me into PYROGRAPHY someting I have never done much of. I fun learning experience.

The mouse is a very unique addition too.
Woodburning always adds an interest factor too. Only those who have never done it think it is easy!

Doug, the carving is very clever sir but I’d scare the daylights out of folk putting my hand on a snake to add my walking, but the mouse is tops sir.

Great job on the carving, burning, and painting. Too tall for a cane, too short for a walking stick? Split the difference and call it a Hiking Staff – not sure what that means? Who Cares? Say it with authority and nobody will question you. LOL Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful work. Have to agree, some folks would freak out seeing someone using it. My better half included. So it could not come it the house.

Nicely done, there is a lot of work and detail, hard to suspect until you try one, keep on showing more.
