This hiking stick was made from a back yard trimmed crab apple branch. The handle is made with two white tailed deer brow tines stacked on ready rod [threaded rod] along with walnut . Leather spacers seperate the pieces. You can grip this handle loosely and the two brow tines pervent your hand from sliding off the top or down the shaft. The bottom is protected with a brass tip. Finished with wipe on poly – satin.

Materials
Wood – Crab Apple , Walnut. Wood dowel
White tailed Deer antler
Threaded rod , nuts , washers .
Brass Tip
Finish – Wipe-on polyurethane – satin

Thank you for your interest.

Hi there Tall1smokey I’ve been using ‘Devcon’ 5 minute , 2 part epoxy , it seems to work well with the wood and the antler.
