A High School classmate of mine and fellow Veteran asked me about making a USMC walking stick for him. He would like the Marine Corp Emblem on it and I have no idea if I can carve it. You can follow along here and observe my progress as I go along. It will also serve as a bit of tutorial for any one who wants to try it themselves.
I am carving this prototype in a piece of poplar dowel that is 1 1/8" and about 6" long.
Come along for the ride. Comments and questions along the way are welcome.
