A few of the custom thread wraps I have done on commission on walking sticks I create. They literally take 16-32 hours each, threads are wrapped one at a time to produce a pattern. It takes much patience to do this, and I usually work three hours at a time or chance screwing up. Its rewarding to see the finished product. I have done over 180 carved and wrapped sticks in the past 10 years, would have done more but work keeps getting in the way of my free time.
