Hand-Turned Bowls and Walking Sticks by Richard (Mac) MacFeely

For The Love of Walking & Wood Turning

Walking sticks — or the longer version hiking sticks – have been around as long as people have walked. They are often made from branches and roots or any wood of the forest. Popular woods are walnut, maple, oak and hickory. The tops can be cast metal or carved wood. Mac will custom fit each stick to the buyer. Mac shares, “Turning, carving and assembling the sticks has kept me challenged. I love helping others find their stride.”

Mac has taught woodturning to other Holmstad woodworkers. He makes exquisite bowls from various woods. Look for his bowls on September 21.

This is more detail of one of the sticks above. Mac made this out of a pool cue and topped it with an eight-ball.
