Not the prettiest stick I ever made but it carries a lot of history. The tapered top is from 60 years of work, moving the carriage back and forth on a Corley saw mill. I cut the bottom off and pinned it back together with Walnut dowels and used it for the handel, I then turned a new bottom for the stick from the same walnut, cut on the mill many years ago. I gave it to my old friend Kevin Batey, the last of the Batey sawyers that wore the handle down.

SORRY YOU STILL HAVE TO TURN YOUR HEAD TO VIEW THE PICTURES. I AM ABOUT DONE WITH POSTING HERE. YOU CAN VIEW RIGHT SIDE UP ON “WALKING STICK MAKERS”

LOL! I was just about to post all the fixed photos for Doug! Looks like crowie beat me to it.

Nice work on the saw mill stick Doug!

Please don’t give up on posting photos we are here to help! That’s what this site is for!
Just ask and someone will jump in to help!
But it would be nice if there were a tool on the site to flip the photos around for you.

Love hearing the history of it and the fact that you gave it to the last guy to wear the handle down. Great story!
