Wrapped carvings without a line

Post by dhellew2 »

Requests at the 2019 UGM Denver for the instructions on how to make a wrapped carved walking stick or other similar items without a line along the ends of the wrap.

Even though PDF was posted in 2014, the technicque is still relevant.

Thanks Ian.
Never enough time to see everyone :cry:

Lots of requests for walking stick parts source

Installation steps:

DO A DRY RUN FIRST
MAKE CERTAIN THE INSERTS CLOSE PROPERLY WHEN INSERTED INTO THE HOLES WHILE THEY ARE SCREWED TOGETHER
THST THE TWO HALVES ARE PROPERLY ALIGNED WITH THE INSERTS INSIDE, INCLUDING O-RING


1. Drill slightly over sized hole for threaded end, enough so the insert will center in the outer ring
2. Add epoxy to hole
3. Insert threaded insert into hole
4. Wipe off excess epoxy make certain there is no epoxy left that could glue the outer ring or O-ring to the cane or insert - wipe with MEK is a good idea
5. Add O-ring around insert; O-ring must be snug [no gap] but small enough to allow the ring to center the insert
6. Slip outside ring to center insert [DO NOT GLUE OUTSIDE RING YET]
7. add a weight to keep insert in place until epoxy sets
Follow steps 1 thru 7 for second half of insert
8. If the two cane halves are to be aligned horizontal do it before the second half of the insert sets
9. Epoxy outer ring to one half of the cane

NOTES:
1. ALWAYS EPOXY IN A VERTICAL POSITION SO THE EPOXY CANNOT RUN OUT OF THE HOLE
2. MAKE CERTAIN THE TOP AND BOTTOM OF THE CANES ARE IN PERFECT VERTICAL ALIGNMENT

3. I PREFER TO GLUE THE SECOND HALF INSERT WITH THE CANE ASSEMBLED; MAKE CERTAIN THE EPOXIED END IS ON THE BOTTOM AND APPLY A WEIGHT TO KEEP THEM TOGETHER UNTIL THE EPOXY SETS
4. For most canes horizontal alignment of the two halves is not important.
5. I prefer to have the male insert on the top half of the cane and glue the outer ring here too, this way there are no protruding parts that could be damaged or cause damage while disassembled
6. Last step is to lubricate the end of the cane that screws into the outer ring and insert threads with a dry lube

NOTICE: IF YOU TRAVEL BE AWARE THAT HUMIDITY WILL CAUSE CANE TO EXPAND..... DON'T MAKE THE PART THAT SCREWS INTO THE RING TOO TIGHT

Here is a photo of the layout of the basket weave walking stick.
Weave is extended beyond the part edge with matching edges at the top and bottom vectors.
