    Who has them, I just made one about a week ago... It not only is a walking stick, it is also very handy at dispatching a toothy gar. If you have one show it here.

    Thanks for reminding me I need to finish that and get it shipped to Sis to give away. Forgot all about it.

    Judy and I were in Townsend, Tennessee three weeks ago and saw this really neat walking stick made by the fellow holding it. I am looking for one of the twisted sticks and try my hand at making one myself. This guy is a true artist. (also take a close look at the mouse he carved on one of the snakes.)

    Here is the one I got about 4 months ago, it was made in Owensboro Kentucky just up the road from the house here.

    My twins won one in Scouts tonight for "Best Tasting Cake" in the cake competition!:big_smile: It's just a plain stick, but it has blue and gold braid, the crest, and it's engraved! The are geeked!

    Nice pics of sticks...been making them for years. I use all types of woods
    for them. My favorite is sassafras, I have a lot of them growing in my area,
    I select them by shape and size. The trick is to cut the top off at about
    six feet, trim the limbs, then either dig them out or pull them out. I use a small garden tractor to pull them. Wash the dirt off the roots and allow
    the blanks to dry. After they are dried I study the root end...you will
    be surprised at the possibilities...everyone is different. I have made eagle
    heads, snake heads...just depends on the root ball. It is fun and relaxing
    making them...also kills time in the winter, when I can't fish. One other
    thing...you can make allot of tea.

    I am too lazy, I have a store bought one, that doubles as a gun brace or camera mount.
