Wood Turned Practice Chanter Walking Stick
Hand turned from African Mopane and Imitation Horn, this style of Practice Chanter Walking Stick was dreamt one night by the Grandfather of wood turning artist Edwin Sinclair, who then turned it in the Madeira street workshop.
Edwin had always wanted one to match the Mopane Pipes that his Dad made for him, but sadly his Dad never managed to fully show him how to turn it before he passed with cancer.
He has since worked out the details and hand turned this example, which also includes a camera mount on top of the ‘thistle’ effectively acting like a mono-pod.
