This is a topper I am doing for a man in the U.K. Just started on the leaves. Not as tall as the other one Anita has a dierant leaf pattern around the face.

This topper is going to a fellow stick lover in the U.K. who is not a carver. I am not sure what shank he pland's to use.

Looking good Randy! Is the order from the U.K. for just the topper? Shipping a complete walking stick across the Atlantic would be rather salty, I would think.

Gret looking topper Randy, will be received well in the UK as they are not a common subject for toppers over here.

Yes mark its just the topper. I am looking into shipping now. I am told by a friend it will be ok if it is bark free and it has a finish on it. I am just not sure yet.

I am the lucky person to have received this topper. Over the moon with it. Cannot wait to put it on the shank I have in mind. But that is seasoning at the moment. Till then I will decide which oil to treat it with and do that. It certainly will be a beefy stick when finished but should be stunning.

Randys work is pretty good pleased your satisfied with it.  It is more like a green man then most  sticks I have seen on this line it gives the impression of that medieval feel used as gargoyles on church's
