86 Cane Patterns for the Woodcarver
86 Cane Patterns for the Woodcarver is an amazing book with that will forever fascinate the collectors and carvers. Tom Wolfe is an avid collector of walking sticks, and as a professional woodcarver knows there is a great market for them. Tom will guide you through carving the designs with a variety of side patterns that are drawn wide and thick so you can measure it one way and be sure that it's the same size the other way. The reason for side patterns is frontal patterns can confuse the carver and cause wasted blanks. You can dramatize patterns by exaggerating a dimension. Your cane handles and shafts should be made out of hard wood. The dotted lines on the patterns denote dowel rods, and spiral lines are double headed screws. There are three different categories for the walking sticks; the Cane which is a walking aid, the Staff or Hiking stick, is head high, and the Thumb Stick that is chest high quarterstaff. In this book Tom generously represents these types of Walking Sticks, with the designs which include everything from Human Heads to Wildlife plus Mystical Creatures.
