I found some nice looking sticks to make a cane and a walking stick out of so I tried a little bit of carving on them. The walking stick has my version of a tree spirit (which everyone says looks evil lol) and the cane has a large mouth bass at the back of the handle and a ducks head on the front.
I had seen some checkering tools online and I want to start checkering gunstocks soon, but in the meatime I decided to make a tool myself to mess around with in the shop. I will probably only use this one on walking sticks because it's a little too large for gunstocks.

I started power carving a couple of months ago which allows me to make any size bowl without the limitations of my lathe. These are all rough bowls that I have to allow to dry properly before I cut them thinner and finish them. They are walnut, spalted elm, and oak burl.
