Fine art walking sticks
Who says you shouldn't have fun while
making a statement, and who says that fine art isn't practical. Here are
some "art" sticks that have entirely practical uses.

|Here's a cane designed for self defence
against a dog. If attacked you will simply reverse your cane, and as the
mutt is chewing on the handle, you go on your way. The tapered shaft is
of hickory, which is a good stout wood should you need to resort to more
drastic measures than feeding fido.
|For those who don't hold with using animal
products or byproducts, here is a version of the dog-defence stick in plastic.
The tapered shaft is purpleheart and hickory.
|This cane is for exercising. You set the
timer for half of the time you wish to walk, and off you go. When the bell
chimes you turn around and go home. The cane is also quite useful for when
you meet those talkative neighbours who interfere with the exercise. In
that case all you need do is twist the top, let it ring and excuse yourself
to "go answer your cellphone". The tapered shaft is of purpleheart and
hickory, which are good stout woods should you need to resort to more drastic
|Gamblers always eventually run out of
luck. This walking-stick prevents that by allowing you to keep a store
of good vibrations in the giant die. The shaft is 3/4 inch mahogany.
|This stick is necessary if you wish to
get rich gambling rather than simply break even while having fun. The shaft
is 3/4 inch maple.
|For those who used the line "I'll give
you a nice neck rub" in college, here is the essential walking stick for
when she says "not with those hands you don't". If you are still batting
zero after that exchange you can always use it on your own back. That tapered
shaft looks like purpleheart.
|An apple a day keeps the doctor away.
Especially if you pick it up and take it for a walk. Note the slot in the
top of the apple, this is where you put the mail after having fetched it
at the end of the driveway so that you can enjoy the walk back to your
front door without having your hands full. Another tapered purpleheart
|This is the most expensive walking stick
I've ever made. The shaft is 3/4 inch cherry but the grip is a solenoid
valve out of a Varian Gas Chromatograph. It cost $600 to replace when a
grad student ran samples containing phosphoric acid through the machine.
"It's not exactly full of beautiful
models in undies but you might find something you want."
