Has anybody got any straight seasoned sticks (hazel,blackthorn,chestnut etc ) that they want to get rid of? Want to make my old man a nice stick for Xmas,and make myself one for when out mooching, any help would be great, cheers

I just make them for family and friends. I have a herons head waiting to be shanked and will get around to doing it eventually.

I made a stick a few years ago with a specific purpose in mind see if you can guess the purpose?

Danish oil mostly, but have done some in varnish by request. I don't make many, a couple a year if that. Crude and functional I like to call them. :laugh:
