Making a staff, and woodcarving in general!
Yesterday me and a friend decided that we would make me a staff, of the mage variety. We got as far as whittling off the bark, sanding the surface smooth, and carving the top and bottom of the handgrip, which I plan to make fairly ornate. Later I'm going to treat the wood with beeswax and olive oil to make it more water resistant and glossy.
Anyway, I was just wondering if anybody here had any experience or advice in woodcarving, any cool designs or resources, examples of their own work, or things like that
This was the original branch as we found it.
Me stood with the whittled and sanded staff.
