How to keep braided handle attached to wood core

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am new to leather braiding and am attempting to braid a leather handle cover for a walking stick. I chose the "Six thong multiple braid" from Bruce Grant's encyclopedia ( Paracord example visual) but am concerned that the leather handle will move around if I do not glue or attach it in some way. I've read affixing the leather lace with nails could help  but was wondering if anyone else had any suggestions. Any advice is much appreciated!

maybe drill a hole or holes and run some of your braid material through the holes. Just a thought and i just noticed it already has a hole drilled lol.

I have done some knot work with paracord on a walking stick in the past. If I remember correctly, I used really small finishing nails to anchor them in place and then hid them under a turks head knot. A thought, (PLEASE CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG) you could try soaking the leather. then braid it. when the leather dries it will shrink a bit and form to the stick. I would like to see the finished project either way..
