I cut one just about 12, months ago.

Not looking to anything too clever with it. Other than removing bark and thorns. Then a few coats of varnish (what varnish.)

Is 12, months long enough before doing the above.

Thank you for any advice.

I thin they say 1 year per inch in diameter of stick.

If the bark isnt to damaged id leave it on and varnish it.

Maybe experiment with antler. You can get some nice bits from pet shops sold as dog chews.

Have fun and enjoy

I’m not one for a lot of effort so could have done a better job finishing but linseed is what I used. Also I’d leave the bark on. Blackthorn is a lovely wood!
