This was a commission for a lady explorer who needed a stylish walking stick when out and about. She wanted it made to the specifications listed on a simple sketch, which made it much simpler to find the necessary parts.
The design included ash and poplar wood, copper fittings, a glass paperweight, and the ubiquitous LED emitter and battery beneath the glass “jewel” headpiece. Added a later was a nylon paracord for grip retention.
Overall, this was a $100 USD commission that will last her for many years of satisfied use.
