Hi Lewis, Thanks for your comment. I used the scroll saw to cut the crook and subsequently carved its from a piece of 1 3/4 inch thick ash which I had cut down several years ago. I attached it to the staff using a 1/2 inch oak dowel drilled into both pieces about 3 inches and attached with Gorilla glue.

Thanks Guys. John, I use only a knife for the carvings and limited use of a Dremel for cleaning out the diamonds. Then lots of elbow grease  and sandpaper. The finish is six coats of Deft brushing lacquer. It is a lot of dirty work but I really enjoy creating them and they are always well received from my customers.
