I was shopping at my local home improvement store, and happen to notice a bunch of yardsticks in the paint department. These yardsticks were made of 1/4" pine, and were less than a dollar each. I also noticed that they were nearly the perfect length for a walking cane.
Step 1: Materials and tools required
- three wooden yardsticks (you want wide, thick ones)
- white glue
- epoxy glue
- 120 grit and 220 grit sandpaper
- 1/8" rubber sheet (optional)
The tools required are minimal. I used a bandsaw, but a hand-held coping saw would do the job. I also used a belt sander, but you can always sand by hand.
