  2. Walking Stick - Handgrip Experiment

    This one is more of an experiment that is applicable to walking sticks or staffs. I was looking at my Ashiko drum (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/108856), and I started to wonder if I could use the same roping method to create a handgrip on a walking stick or staff. After a bit of drilling and...
  3. Hand Carved Walking Sticks

    Here are a couple of walking sticks. Carving walking sticks is what I do to break up the boredom of carving chess pieces (just kidding…sort of). They are all about 60" in length and started out at about 2.5-3" in diameter, the carvings are about 12-16" on each. The one in the middle is made...

    I've been making some cars for our Toy Giveaway on the first Sat in December. Our woodworking club "The Mason Dixon Woodworkers" have a charity outreach where we give toys to around 25 different charities that they then distribute the toys to the children of disadvantaged families that they...
  5. Sticks a Plenty

    In the beginning I made Shepherd Crooks that I sold at Sheep Dog Trials that I participated in and have one or more in 28 states and three foreign countries. In later years I still use the Shepherd Crook motif for most of my walking sticks. I make them in both Walking Stick height (up to 36...
  6. Walnut and Leather Forearm Crutches

    These were a custom request from a lady who has MS and walks with a forearm crutch. Right now she only needs one but we decided a pair would be better so they would match if she needs both in the future. Both crutches were cut from the same board. I picked the straightest grained one I could...
  7. Taper / angle / straightening jig

    If you followed the build blog, thanks. If not, here's a couple snaps of the jig. The base was a leftover piece of laminate flooring topped with a piece of roughly 1/4 ply. The side rail was whiteboard I think. The handles and hold-downs were of the same wood and the knobs were made from...
  8. Custom Tall Cane #144: Macawood, Black Walnut & Cherry [A Gobsmacker of a Cane]

    This is an extra tall, extra LARGE cane made for a client who is 6'4" tall. He originally purchased a cane of a similar shape but it was cut much too short for his stately stature, so I needed to convince him that I could make him a cane suitable for his needs. His original response to my...
  9. A Cause for Walking Sticks

    Earlier this year my father's cousin Michael sent us some information about a former Army Ranger, Rory Fanning, who decided to take time out of his life to walk clear across the US to raise funds for The Pat Tillman Foundation. Rory's quest is personal, he served with Tillman, and the two were...

  11. My First Clock - Finally done!

    Have you ever had a partially finished project that sat in the shop and collected dust year after year? Have you ever had a project that was filled with frustration from beginning to end?

  13. Canes and Handles from Dunnage

    We had our big Christmas Show at the mall on the 8th and 9th of December. I had a couple of folks call after to get custom canes made. In this case the customer wanted a tapered cane with a handle to hold a Coast Guard coin in the end. When someone asks for a certain type of item I will usually...
  14. Walking Stick handles from Curly Morare, Curly Movingui (dunnage)

    I made some sample handles a few weeks ago for a gentleman who sells walking sticks. He called and asked for more so I turned these. Average time on the lathe from square blank to 320 grit sanded was 10 minutes. Some pieces were Curly Movingui or Curly Morare. I don't know the species of the...
  15. walking sticks

    Given my lack of experience in the manufacture of walking sticks, I wanted to try my hand in their construction. I used broomsticks used bamboo cane and pieces of oak and plane tree. A tribute to my mother-in-law.
  16. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I came accross a box of cane/stick kits at a yard sale the other day….couldn't resist the price even though I had never considered turning them before. The kits have a threaded segment and a thread on head attachment….which would require the use of a carved or turned head. Has anyone had much...
  17. Sweating for Bucks Through Woodworking
    I just created a Facebook page for my little web site Kentucky Walking Sticks. I'm hoping to be able to sell a few more walking sticks because of using facebook, but I was wondering if any of you guys had done this? I'm just not sure as to how I can increase sales using this method?

    I am attempting to stain a pine crib white. (pine to preserve the bites and bangs of a special infant) So I need a safe white stain and protective coating product. I tried white wash pickling from minwax on a test piece and it's simply not white enough, even after 4 coats. I'll tell the...

    Custom Canes for Wounded Warriors For those of you who know me, this has been an ongoing interest stemming from our humble small business of making custom canes for people who need a walking aid and who are interested in having one that is not resembling an aluminum medical device or a cheap...
  20. Marketplace Classifieds
    I don't know if any of you guys make walking sticks, but as a stick maker, I can tell you it's really difficult to locate wood for unique walking sticks. I have found a location where I have, for the past three weeks been searching for and cutting really great looking twisted or curled sticks...
