I decided I would like to make a gloss black walking stick. I had prepared some cherry wood and have used one of my stick blanks to make a black cherry part wobble walking stick. I think it looks rather nice with the shiny black lacquer finish. Cherry is a good wood for making walking sticks. Now all I need to do is make a handle that will show off the stylish beauty of this stick shaft!
I've had to be very careful when cutting this piece of cherry to bring out the lovely grain pattern. Approximately one-third of the length of this stick features the unique 'Dragon Egg' wobble, which shows off the beautiful light golden brown grain perfectly. It will make a stunning designer dress stick when it is finished. This handmade walking stick will be approximately 35 inches long when finished.
