Larry Cluchey is a self taught wood turner producing finely crafted works in Canadian hardwoods and hardwood burls since 1990.

" The end of friendships, the loss of family members. It would be wonderful to think that death allow for the best of this world to carry onto the next. We certainly hope this is the case for our departed loved ones. It seems only fitting that we surround those departed with the best and finest this world has to offer. A final token of friendship, love and respect.
The end of one journey. The beginning of the next. A path of unknown length and incalculable hardships between."

Matched Pair of Walking Sticks
Figured Maple handle with White Ash shaft, Copper and Polylastomer tip. Nylon lanyard
$110.00 each

First, I’ll offer up a pair of fine strong walking sticks, in the hopes of diminishing the burdens of that unknown path. Two walking sticks so that you may invite a friend or stranger to accompany you along the way to lessen the loneliness and renew your spirit.

Madrone Lidded Vessel
Madrone, Elk Antler, African Blackwood
Collection of James Watson, Durham, ON

Secondly, I’ll offer up finely crafted vessels of wood and bone, precious repositories to carry those treasured memories safely on that path to the new journey.

Maple Burl Vessel
Spalted Maple Burl, Purpleheart

What else will accompany you? What will comfort you to and on your next journey? I think we all suspect there is little we can take with us. Maybe we could take knowledge or understanding or compassion. Perhaps, but most of all I think we would want to take memories.

Good luck, good fortune and fare weather.
