Stephen Renico Posted June 15, 2009 Share Posted June 15, 2009 Since I first saw it, I was inspired by Jake Powning's "Aged Beechroot Cudgel, named Woodsward": Keeping that in mind, I was in the process of making a spike cudgel from a maple branch, when I happened to run across a picture of an Oni mask from a Noh drama. So, I got out my carving chisels and went to work. I incorporated the spikes into head by turning them into horns. A few coats of black stain, steel-wooled off on the high spots of the face, and this is the result: Full shot. It's 31" in length: The face: Right side. I've found out after a few other carving experiments that you need to carve deeply halfway decent results: Left side: Top: Full shot from the top: Full shot from the bottom: Those who beat their swords into plowshares usually end up plowing for those who did not.
