No work but trimming on some scraps. They will shrink and crack, but by that time my two year old and four year old grandkids will probably have outgrown them. We often take walks to a nearby park. Now we all will have sticks!
Thanks Sean. I haven't been able to master the paracord lanyard braids that everyone is doing, so I fell back on what I learned as a kid from some other kid with regard to the wrap and the simple slipknot kind of braid. The little ones will like them until they destroy them or destroy something that gets the sticks banned. ;-)
