"STYLE ON THE TRAIL"...

with Whisky Ridge Trail Gear©

36"

TWO LEAD ROPE TWIST

WALKING STICK

CANE

a NEWLY designed and crafted

stick/cane I've added to

the

WHISKY RIDGE TRAIL GEAR

line of ENHANCED STICKS.

This isone of aseries of more or less conventionalsticks / canes that I'm offering here on . Theselistings are all 36" stickswith a shaftdiameter of 1 3/16 at the top end of the shaft and 15/16" at the bottom end. They are allturned from Appalachian RED OAK. TheOak has all been kiln dried,milled and 'shop acclimated' for three years, then turned in two operationstothe finished diameter to assure straight shafts, methods Iused when building cue sticks.At this point in their evolution, the shafts are separated into two basic categories: those intended for rope twist embellishment like the one offered in this listing and those deemed best suited for other, less 'invasive' fancy work such as flutes and ribbon twists.

PLEASE NOTE: This stickcertainly can be used for 'reasonable' support, while keeping the limitations of the design in mind. A LOT of wood has been removed to create the double rope twist design and therefore the stick is considerabley weaker than a solid shaft of the same overall diameter.. Prudent use for support is recommended!

Please be aware that special care has been takenin order to achieve andmaintaina high level of integrity in the finished piece...whether it is a utilitarian stick or a more 'showy' stick better suited to the opera or theater scene. This commitment toahigh level ofquality is a standard and promise here at Whisky Ridge Trail Gear. AND all owners of Whisky Ridge sticks are ensured of continuing support should there ever be a problem. Initial purchase comes with an absolute30 day return policy.

Though relatively strong, I would class this model in the 'showy' category, IT'LL TURN HEADS!

The specs of this piece are:

  • SHAFT:(Red Oak) Diameter:1 3/16" at the top, 15/16" at the foot; it is embellished with a two lead rope twist.
  • HANDLE:A NEW STYLE, SOLID ALUMINUM (not hollow cast) 'FRITZ' TYPE HANDLE, attached to the shaft with a 3/8-16 post andT6 ALUMINUM COLLAR. This shaft/collar system is completely compatible with all of my handled sticks...(they are all
  • FOOT: is a conventional white (shown in photos) rubber tip, 7/8" ID. A black tip is available in my store
  • FINISH: finished with oil (heated,immersion) for a protective, non-gloss, velvety feel. Buyer/Owner could add a hard shell (epoxy, lacquer, polyurethane, varnish) finish after purchase.
  • VERY LIGHT WEIGHT!RED OAKis ahandsome and pretty strong and resilient wood,good for a stick or cane; it'smoderate weight keeps it from beingtoo heavy in the handfor everyday use, and withthe use of aircraft ALUMINUM for the handle, even though it is a solid casting, these sticks arevery light weight: (mostweigh in at around 1pound)foreasy use!

Thoughts on walking sticks, canes, walking staffs, shepherd's crooks, etc.: You might, like I did, begin wondering about the history of these objects. I think that maybein the here-to-fore bygones, you didn't have to have an infirmity to need or want something to lean on or fall back on. Everybody carried a stick! Practical and Fashionable. it not only helped over rough terrain and tight spots, but was also a reassurance when confronting ice, mean animals, bad guys, and maybe even dragons! Psychologically, who doesn't feel just a tad more in control of his or her own destiny while carrying a stick? Whether a peasant, a peddler, a court magician, or the queen herself, we all feel a wee bit safer when armed with more than wits alone.

This, of course, leadsthe imaginationinto the realm of speculation: if everyone is carrying a stick of one size and shape, wouldn't it be wise to carrya bigger stick? or a more imposing one? Perhaps one complex enough to distract an adversary... or even one with magical powers? In this more-or-less real world, I wondered what kind of detailing, if any, could enhance and decorate the sticks. . . and I'm dancing as fast as I can exploring the possibilities! By the way, I'm a woodturner by vocation, making almost any and all kinds of turned wood objects on my lathes. I've made things as small as push-pins and as large as columns (26 feet tall for a government building in California). I'm often responsible for designing and crafting architectural turned parts such as stair balusters and newel posts, furniture parts such as legs, pedestals, stretchers, lamps and lighting fixtures, spindles of all sorts, simply turned or embellished with flutes, spirals or other ornamentation. Mywood turningranges from the mundane (such as tool handles) to the artistic; seven of my 'latheart' works are in the permanent collection of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and other institutions as well as many private collections. Because I thoroughly enjoy what I do, I'm constantly looking for new turning opportunities...the spurtles and honey dippers, hiking sticks and all of the turnedobjectsin my store are perfect examples! I'm creating something fun, decorative and useful for people to enjoy, making a little green to stay on the planet, and having a whole lot of fun in the process.

I guarantee that you won't be disappointed.. . that's why I have a 30 day return policy, and I will honor it cheerfully if you are not completely satisfied with the transaction.
