Between recovering from the broken rib (not pneumonia, as thought) and the early arrival of summer heat, I haven't been in the shop much. Last couple of days were nice though, so I got some long-needed sawdust therapy.

 

An apple (I think) handle which I made a while back finally got a home. I had a cherry hiking stick which I wasn't crazy about, so I took the head off it and stuck on the apple handle. Threw in a slice of yellow birch as a spacer.

 

Also decided to tackle that really cool ash stick I found last year. Got it trimmed and have started stripping the bark.

Very nice! Is the apple root wood or just a convoluted limb.

Thanks guys. To be honest, I don't remember if it was a root or a limb. Looks more limb-ish, though.
