I met Mark DeCou several years ago when I first joined the LumberJocks community. From the very beginning I have been impressed with Mark's workmanship. Mark is also a very giving man, never shying away from assisting a fellow woodworker.
Mark has made many beautiful walking sticks and canes by combining his skills in wood turning and carving. The Handcarved Wood Spirit Natural Sapling Hiking Stick is a wonderful example!
This natural elm tree sapling has been carved to expose a wood spirit near the handle. There is also an inlaid natural mother of pearl piece from a Chase County Kansas Middle Creek River Clam Shell on the end of the stick.

Finally, here's a link to DeCouStudio's Etsy shop. I hope you can take some time to visit and possibly even spend a little money! I also hope you enjoy DeCouStudio's work as much as I do.
