I have been side lined with a few health issues but was able to get back at it today.This is a sassafras stick with butternut topper. The top is fitted but not glued yet. hope to do that tomorrow. This stick is going to a raffle a group I belong to has every year to help others. need to have it done by Friday.

A good looking stick, like the carved collars (top & bottom) and the hand grip area, well done, what finish are you giving the shank.

Hope the Arthritis pain is easing up.

Some time it is hard to clamp a topper to a longer walking staff. I have found this to work well. I love my work mate. I have had this on for 25 years.

After it dried I made a black wash with thinned acrylic paint and darkened the collors. I used a thinned terra cotta wash on the grip. I will apply the spar varnish tomorrow.

Very cool! Tell us about the finish on the stick. What did U use to contrast the grip from the shank?
