Started another staff today.
6ft hazel pole I've had seasoning for some time.
Carved a cage in the top and put some blue marbles in, stripped the bark and that's it so far

Nice neat carving there Jon, did you drill it out vertically first?
I did ☺ I had intended to carve it as one and have wooden balls in the cage but I haven't attained those skills yet. I then thought about steaming the cage to get the marbles in but my steamer is broken 😕
