This is a Shillelagh style walking stick I made for my friend who happens to be the local barber in the neighborhood I grew up in. He is in his 80’s and still is out cutting fire wood on his property a few days a week. Over the years we have become good friends and when I started getting back into wood working he was eager to give me a collection of burls that he has cut over many years. It was such a precious gift so I decided that I would thank him by making a Shillelagh style walking stick with one of the beautiful oak burls he gave me. The shank is natural Blackthorn and has been fitted with a brass collar and walking tip.
Thanks for looking!
