Have you ever thought about making a walking stick? If so here's an easy way to do it.

Step 1: Getting a Stick.

Getting a stick is easy you just walk to your woods or little patch of tree's in your backyard and cut a stick down. It doesn't really matter what kind of tree it is it just has to be long enough and strong enough so if you lean on it it won't snap under you're weight. So if you want to make a walking stick make sure you pick one that is thick long and make sure it isn't dead.

Step 2: Getting the Bark Off.

So wants you've picked out a stick out you will need to shave the bark off of it for that you will need to ether a pocket knife or if you have draw knife that also works pretty good.

Step 3: Polishing and Protecting the Wood.

So wants you've got all the bark off and it sanded to where it is smooth you will need to put a type of polish on but it also has to protect the wood so I would recommend using coconut oil but you could also use a wood stain to polish the stick as well. Once you've put the stain on you need to wipe the stick with a rag but if you use coconut oil I would just let it sit in a nice sunny spot and dry. When it's done drying you have a nice walking stick. I hope you guys like this and it helps you.
