An Important Job

I had a little job to do for my old Da this weekend to repair his walking stick . The stick has had a hard life, in service for the last dozen years or so  . I stripped the handle from the stick bored the handle to clean the old glue out, and give the new glue a key.  Then I cleaned up the top of the stick and the base of the handle with a rasp , for the glue to get a good hold.
 I pushed these together to check the fit, then mixed up some two part adhesive I spread this over the threads of the metal rod which acts as the dowel and over the ends then pushed the two together wiped away the excess and left it to cook over night. This morning a light sanding and some oil revamped the old mans stick :)
