My first Instructable so be kind. This is just a work in progress that I will keep improving. My next one will be made f Bamboo.i had this idea of making a Walking Staff that could hold some fishing line , hooks, small fishing weights. Or for an emergency a small (very small ) med kit. Or (what i want to use it for ) Emergency Survival Fire starter Kit.
Also good for Geocaching . You can put your pen, pencil, and small trinkets for trade.

1” PVC male adapter

Step 2: 1st Cuts: 1” PVC Coupling
1” PVC Coupling cut in to two parts.

part 2. 1&1/8" cut.
Step 3: Cutting the 12” PVC Pipe
Cut the 12" PVC pipe down to 7&7/8 in.
Step 4: Glue Time
Use a PVC Cement to glue the 7&7/8” PVC pipe,1” PVC male adapter & 1” X ¾” PVC male adapter together.
Step 5: Time for the Staff
I glued the 1” ¼” X 48” Wooden Dowel (just could not find the right tree branch for this next time) and the 1” X ¾” PVC Female Adapter together. I added some duct tape and two small nails for more stability.
Step 6: Extras
Now using the parts from step two, I added them to the threaded ends so that when closed it makes a clean look.
Step 7: Done.
I added some Cork, leather wrap, and black paint to the PVC pipe. I also added some paracord and chain tot he staff.
