Happy New Year 2024! from Stinnett Sticks
Happy New Year, my friends! I want to thank you all for your support of my work and watching my videos! Early last year, I had a real challenge making the most complicated piece of work I had ever done; the Collared Lizard walking stick. After that I decided to do a few easier snake walking sticks. The Blacktailed Rattlesnake cane was a lot of fun and I'm proud to have it featured on the cover of Treeline's 2024 catalog. I think I'm about ready to tackle another complicated project. Hopefully, soon, I will be carving a desert tortoise project which will take a lot of studying as I don't have any good references other than online photos. I'm sure it will be a lot of fun, though!
My Current Project will Soon
be Available in My Store
Right now I'm working on a western rattlesnake walking stick. This is the local species of rattlesnake that I have always had to avoid stepping on around here. I should have it done in a couple of weeks and hope to offer it for sale on my website. We'll be sure to let you all know when it's available.
