Sorry It is just because I carved the stick before I was going to make an Ible.<br><br>:2)
hey for your first walking stick nice.
Ive been carving walking sticks, canes and staves for many years and your instructable is very good for a beginner. Some things you may want to consider for the future, chose a strong stick with a good diameter, allow the stick to age/cure for at least a couple of months out of the weather, after seasoned remove the bark and sap layer, then carve and finish as desired. This will give you a stick or a collection of sticks that will last a good long time, adding a ferrule on the bottom, (metal or rubber depending on intended walking surface) will protect the end of the stick. A green stick is fine for a temporary, picked up, used and discarded stick but is prone to cracking if you remove the bark and carve it, any remaining bark will eventually dry and flake off even if you've varnished the piece. Keep up the good work....
Thanx<br><br>I have only been carving sticks for about a week so i don't really know the affect on the stick but i did carve one about a year ago and i took of all of the bark and it was still green, now a year later it hasn't cracked??? It was still a rubbish carve
I said the stick would be more prone to cracking, even a seasoned stick can develop cracks or the stick can crack while seasoning and very little is as annoying as coming back to a piece and finding a crack running through your design !
I am sure it is.
