Default Double headed widgeon stick

here are some pics of a stick made by Ian James (featured in "stickmaking a complete course" by A. Jones & C.George). we both belong to the same stick making club. whether he carves birds or animals all of his sticks are incredible. he's also a great tutor and always gives advice freely when asked.
hope you enjoy.
