This is the first time I have ever used Colorwood from Rutland, Vermont. I had to resaw from a turning bowl blank 8×9x3 inches to get down to one inch I needed to work with. Expensive but I think worthwhile. All have oak shaftsand one has no spacer and one has a bolldwood spacer Also there is one walnut and yellowheart handle with a bloodwood spacer. Bought the bowl block from Craft store in Utah.

Very nice handles, they look comfortable to hold and will easily stay on your arm when you put it there to handle something else! Pun intended!

Looks like you have been busy. I would bet that the laminated handles are strong. I really like the ‘bird’ shaped handle.

Very nice looking sticks indeed James. It used to be that no well dressed man would be seen dead without his walking stick, and in that case yours would certainly make the man.

Great workmanship on the sticks, Bob, and the pictures show them off nicely. What finish did you use to give them that nice shine?
