The Wallypult

Post by Paul D » Fri Jun 30, 2017 1:02 pm

Recently that lovely chap Wallyboyrob gifted me a fine piece of Hazel cut from the banks of the delightful river Wallington, A little cutting, scrapping and buggering about and I've made myself a useful catty.
I've sheathed the handle end in brass purely for decoration, the handle and ends of the arm are bound in hemp cord, wanted to keep it all a bit rustic ( that's my excuse! ).
A leather pouch via that online place and a couple of costs of varnish finished it off.

Lovely job Paul :Hat:

My biggest worry is that my wife ( when I'm dead ) will try to sell my fishing tackle for what I said I paid for it.
