To date, The Pointy Stick Compendium Project has only received
one, count 'em one, pointy stick contribution. Has the noble and
ancient art of pointy stick making almost died out. Are there
no pointy stick makers amongst us? Surely there are a few
neanders who have kept the craft alive. And someone out there
with a CNC machine has to have made at least one pointy stick.
So PLEASE, send your photos and drawings of YOUR pointy
stick. And if you would, try and keep the file size below
5 megs, 100K would be preferable. And some text describing
the stick, including the style, method of fabricating, wood
used and source of inspiration would be appreciated.

ps I've gotten wind of a "throw it away and it comes back"
pointy stick that was found in OZ. Am researching
Sorry ... I would love to contribute, but don't have enough room in my shop
to make pointy sticks worthy of the effort.
OK, dammit, here's one ... it's a Pointy Stick Bill Cap that, with a little
practice, and a steady (slightly oversized) head, allows you to keep both
(count'em, TWO) hands free on the measuring device while marking your wood,
(or is the other way around?):
Also great for those who are missing personal indexing digits on account of
not having heard of splitters and guards. Plans are available for a small
shipping and handing fee for WWCA ...or will be after they rip this off
Actually, those are the ones QC rejected. They de-point them
and sell them to both Chinese AND Japanese restaraunts.
But you should see the beautiful triple mitered point rosewood
pointy sticks they make.
Am anxiously awaiting a "can't lose it" pointy stick coming
from Australia. I'm told you can actually throw it away - and
it comes right back! Have no idea what it looks like but will
put up an image of it after I've had time to read the manual
and do some testing on it.
My great great Grandfather was a Pointy Stick Master Craftsman. I
recently found a photo of him with a partially completed Pointy Stick.
