I’ve always enjoyed sci-fi, but it’s only been within the last few years that I actually sat down to watch all of the various Trek shows – though I still have to watch most of the movies. Between that and the constant Trek memes appearing on my timeline I felt inspired to make a set of three themed staves.
This staff shows the emblematic combadge from Star Trek’s Starfleet with colored yarn displaying the colors of crew uniforms. On the opposite side quotes the famous intro line from both the original series and Next Generation “To Boldly Go.” The image and lettering were created with wood burning and paint pens. The staff itself stands at roughly 52″ tall, is made of sumac wood which is both lightweight and sturdy, and has a coating of acrylic sealer and boiled linseed oil to protect both the image and wood.
