Every Time I go for a hike I like to use a walking stick. Well I figured it was time to class it up with this oak and mahogany staff with copper accents. OK ok truth be told I got bored and wanted to do some spindle work. It’s made out of oak and some old mahogany base bored I had, the copper is copper piping I shined up on the lathe. The stick is 4’6” so I had to make it in two pieces the middle copper ring holds the two together. If I make another I would make it a little bigger in diameter this one seems just a little on the skinny side. If I don’t use it for hiking it could also double as a mop handle!

Blue, that’s one of the swellest-looking sticks I think I’ve seen in at least a couple weeks.

Awesome. Even if you don’t need it for hiking or a mop handle, you could certainly sell it. I mean, have you PRICED mahogany and oak mop handles lately? Not to mention that they’re usually mahogany and ash. Like anybody’s gonna fall for that one. Fine work.

It’s hard to beat a good stick.

Have your say...
