The Minnesotastan says: "One of my prized possessions is a walking stick that was hand-carved for me by an elderly man in Kentucky when I used to live and work there. The one above was carved by a craftsman in Oregon from a single stick of wood. Here is his video documenting the process."
Mike Stinnet made this copperhead walking cane. He has an Etsy store with other wondrous carvings and paintings.
