I have a hobby/retirement business carving walking sticks, hiking staffs and canes. I also carve bowls, make letter openers etc. If it's sunny, I explore; drive, hike, bike... and when it rains.. I carve. I also cut and sew leather satchels for my walking sticks.

Would I get a special deal since we have the same name (different spelling) & both have fiberglass campers??

You do some very nice work!

I have made a few hand made walking staffs myself in the last year that I thought were pretty nice.
Yours are much nicer.
I even considered using a brass feral (from a pool cue) to make them easier to keep in the car and such.

We had to have a 65 year old cherry tree cut down last year that I have made a few from.

Good work sir.
