Glen,

I. Most suitable woods... how long is a piece of string? Depends on individual taste nad also on availability. Here in Ireland the most frequently used woods are Balckthorn, Hawthorn, Ash, Holly and Birch.

2. Straightening... I never understand why some much time and effort is expended on straightening shanks. They are never going to be used as billiard cues and they lose much of the unique characteristics that nature provided. For me you can't beat a well finsihed walking stick that has been allowed to retain its own individuality.

Regards.

Paddy
