Third RSCDS Spring Ball Staff

February 20, 2011

The RSCDS Sacramento Branch’s 2011 Spring Ball will be on Saturday May 21, 2011. For this staff I started with this oak branch that was given to me by the grounds keeper where I work.

Since the branch (oak) was already the length I wanted, I covered the exposed ends with silicone sealer to keep them from cracking during the year it has been drying. Today I debarked and sanded the staff to be.


Third RSCDS Spring Ball Staff

February 20, 2011

2010 marked our thirtieth birthday as an RSCDS Branch. This staff was created more to highlight the grain of the wood than to display carving. I chose to use a wood burner to add the ball information. One of my sisters won this staff and gave it back to me.
