I turned this walking stick for my neighbor. It’s made from oak. This is my first attempt at a walking stick and it ranges from 1” to 1 1/8” in diameter. It was especially a challenge to turn the middle section because I don’t have a steady rest and I had to deal with major vibration and chatter but I took my time and removed only a small amount of wood in sections to keep the vibration to a minimum. It’s 34” tall and the handle is 6 1/2”. Taylor made for my neighbor’s fit. This was a fun project and I might make a couple more of these to introduce a couple of design changes but first I am going to make a steady rest. Thanks for viewing. Constructive criticism welcome.
