Hi guys and gals,
This walking staff called “pilgrim walking staff” is an educational piece for a Catholic church. It originated in Spain and there are very few descriptions of it on the net. I did google the types of tree that grow there and oak was one of them and I had one 4X4 piece of white oak leftover from building my house in 1986 which was utilized to make this staff with. Since it was for educational purposes it was made in three pieces so it could travel without it getting damaged as it is over 6’ tall. The hardest part for me was to align the grain and keep it straight. It has an inch or so wobble to it. It was made on an old 1980’s Sears tube lathe.
Thanks for looking and any suggestions as to how I could have prevented the wobble would be great.
