Step 9: You've finished
Here are pictures of more wooden handled sticks I've made.
One is a cross handled walking stick, a regular crook, a pine handled stick similar to the one in this project and Snake. Made from one fiece of wood with a great shape just painted to resemble a snake
The penknife. My trusty Victorinox Rucksack. It has a saw just perfect for cutting a shank if I see one and really handy on the workbench.
Please let me know how you get on with this instructable - it is my first! and perhaps show pics of your own sticks.
