Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:


Step-by-step directions, helpful sidebars, and detailed patterns provide the necessary instructions for woodworkers to create more than 15 different and unique canes and walking sticks. Educating crafters on the best types of wood to use, what materials are needed, and basic techniques and hardware, this sourcebook presents projects for beginners, such as a bark on pine walking stick, as well as sophisticated works, including a turned two-piece cane with a brass handle, for more seasoned woodworkers. In addition to a discussion of the woodworking techniques of sanding, shaping, and turning wood in order to create polished, elegant canes and staffs, readers will find an impressive photo gallery featuring works from the private collection of Albert LeCoff, executive director of the Wood Turning Center in Philadelphia.
