    I used a vee gouge and deepened the tips with a chip carving knife after I had the pattern on. It looked OK. The guy I made it for said he liked it and he used it for several years. It was the only one I had done with scales. I wish I had taken pictures of it.
    I haven't done much carving on walking sticks so someone else may know an easier way to make scales.
