Unfinished crotch crutch

$80.00

Here is another single one-off crutch. It should bring a smile to a nature lovers face. This one is larger than the other listed here and it has an odd offset. The offset allowed the lower hand grip to be face mounted and still be relatively straight in line with the load. It is White Birch and it can be cut to satisfy a person up to 5'-11 or maybe 6' ( presently it stands about 54" tall). The best way is to measure off a real crutch and note the overall height and the height to the top of the grip as well...I'll gladly tell you if it can match or be cut. The handgrip is held on with two stainless steel carriage bolts in elongated holes (need a 7/16" wrench) and it can be adjusted between 15-1/2" to 19" below the armpit rest. This specimen is still somewhat fresh and not finish sanded. It can be left raw or you can finish it to your liking once it is "seasoned". The offset might be handy for hip clearance or belly clearance depending on which way you turn it. If nothing else it is unique. You will have to find an 1-1/2" rubber tip...this one horse town has a poor selection. The uprights on the branch are 1" and 1-1/8" and they are mortised into the top birch a shy inch and pinned with rosehead cut nails. At present it weighs 3# 14 ozs, and for reference it was cut and constructed for about a week as of 4/5/22.
