As some of the people who’ve looked at my twisted juniper have asked me, “how’d you get the pieces to twist that way?”


Nice work, great canes.

hey there jamie, if you getting old like me you cant afford to scratch to much without loosing more hair……these are really fun to make and there not that hard, i put a large shaving wheel in my drill press and go to it, i start on one end and turn them until i get to the other end, then i do a lot of sanding…and shape it so there is a good hand hold, i put 2 coats of oil on it, watco natural….if i were going to use one, it would be the cedar, but i made it for a gal i go to church with,,so i will be making more…thanks for the comments folks…grizz

Grizz, You’re getting good at these curly sticks. You think you need the rubber tip for safety/grip? I like the looks of the ones with a copper ferrule on the tip.
