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.

I missed these beautiful sticks.  Does Don sell these sticks?  

 

Could you cut off the top, soak it in water and then put it in the microwave or oven for a few minutes to steam it?  Of course, you would need a jig to form it while it is hot and steamy.  Just a thought.
