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!
-- I love my lathe. It’s old, not too pretty and I don’t really know how to use it… Love it!
