Walking sticks-deterrent.

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Walking sticks-deterrent.So, I had this customer who runs an outfitter in the arctic in Canada. The walking sticks are over 7' tall and they are used to create a distance between the guide and the polar bears in case of a close encounter. He said that due to the lack of humidity, most wood products virtually disintegrate within a year or so. My challenge was to make these sticks to withstand the severe dryness the environment in arctic presents. I used Contact cement combined with CA glue for the inlays and gave each stick about 12 coats of polyurethane before shipping it to him. As far as I know, so far, more than a year and half later the sticks are alive and well providing a safe distance between him and the 10'+ polar bears. He is supposed to let me know when these sticks will start to show wear so long as he maintain them with a coat of turtle wax car finish every week. I plan on doing an article on that when or if the finish relents. Isn't it funny that most of our worried is the excessive humidity instead of lack thereof??
