A Gathering of Observers

They used to watch me write for hours, and were very good company. I made them who they are, and hopefully they are used for walking as they were meant to be. It’s sad, thinking of them being somewhere outside my realm, not knowing if they are mistreated. I hope they are admired, used properly, and handed down through generations. I built them to last and poured my heart into each and every one of them. They were my humble beginnings.

A few hundred yards of thread

A few hundred yards of thread

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.
