Walking Stick Instructions

Post by dhellew2 »

The attached pdf contains the step by step instruction and files for making a carved walking stick.
Should you find any errors and/or omissions please post them.
It is a lot easier to make them than it is to tell how to make them. :shock:

These files do not contain clip art, it will be necessary to add your own to the attached files.
Have fun!

Nice Work. Curious as to how long these take to cut?

I would allow about 5 hours for each half.
Only the carved part takes a lot of time.
The rounding and profile cuts only take a few minutes.
I usually cut several blanks at a time then do the carving later, usually evening or during the night.

The total material cost is about $10 including finish, hardware, wood, and shoe.

I only make them for gifts for people that need them and family reunion auctions.
Most folks that use a cane find they prefer the stick because they are easier to use, more stable than a cane. light weight, and they have something to lean on while standing.

I never travel without one.

These are too detailed for commercial production.
