Mushroom walking sticks part 2
Submitted to Show Off
Well after making walking sticks for 3 of my grandchildren I figured it was time to make a couple for my twin sons. Theirs are equipped with rulers for bragging rights! I've added a mesh bag to allow for spores to fall freely from the bag as you walk, replacing what we harvest. I added 2 notches to the side of stick and when there are mushrooms in the bag, the stick can be balanced on one finger to determine the weight , 1 or 2lbs. The mushroom stick can be laid on the forest floor to help adjust your eyes to the pattern to speed up the "finding"process. There is also a notch in the end of the stick to aid in pushing briers out the way.
