A common trait of woodworkers (and all artists) is a general desire to share their craft with others. Most of us do offer shop-to-shop services, but it’s our customers that most often write our paychecks. Alternately it is often the recognition that comes from our peers, those qualified to pass judgment, which strokes our egos. A feature profile in Woodshop News generates such peer recognition within the various trades of woodworking.

Stanley D. Saperstein, Master Craftsman Emeritus, was featured in an article entitled “Sticking With It” published January 2009, Woodshop News, providing an opportunity to show off his hand made folk art walking sticks, canes, and hiking staffs. Stanley, now retired, enjoys spending time whittling, pursuing his historic interests, and causing trouble around the shop to keep him busy. He was interviewed by staff writer Jennifer Hicks for his artist profile.

We’ve also reprinted the article in Artisans Quarterly Review Vol. 2 Issue 2 – 2009. The article is paired with a feature article on diamond will walking sticks.

More of Stanley’s walking sticks are featured on our spin-off website www.customwalkingsticks.com.
