Discover the world of crafting canes and staffs. Learn from woodworker and author, Charlie Self, how to make simple creations or create a fancy "one of a kind" work of art. Fifteen projects are included in the book with step-by-step instructions, helpful sidebars, and full-color photographs. This is a fun and easy to follow book. Included in the book is a guide to North American woods, 25 original carving patterns from renowned artist Lora S. Irish, and a stunning gallery of canes and walking sticks from the private collection of Albert LeCoff, executive director of the Wood Turning Center in Philadelphia. We like this book a lot, especially the excellent pictures and explanations for stick making. Soft cover with 141 pages in color.
