Introduction: Escrima Sticks
these are the sticks i made to go with my stick dummy( see my other one on how to make a stick dummy here ).
all you need to make them is: one inch oak dowels and some stain. for tools you need: a saw, a rasp,and a cloth for the stain. first, you need the dowels. cut them down to the right length, the typical size is 26 inch's. then, file the edges some. now, sand the whole thing till it's smooth. this is an optional step if you want more detail. if you want you can wood burn them with a candle or butane lighter. wrap with aluminum foil where the edges will be , then you just run it over the flame till it turns dark.now for the staining. stain the wood, following the instructions.let it dry. finally sand with fine steel wool and you are done! please be careful , as the will HURT. now have fun with your new sticks.
P.S. PLEASE vote for me and be sure to post pics of your sticks
