A nice surprise?

Hi fellas, I have a few shanks drying that I am looking forward to trying to turn into sticks, the thing is, they aren't your run of the mill species such as Hazel, Ash, Chestnut etc. I have Birch, Sycamore, Cherry, Hawthorn and Holly. I was wondering if anyone else has tried to use an unusual timber and either it was a great success or a complete failure? I look forward to hearing some of your experiences. Thanks. N.

I have used Hawthorne and have done it with bark on just dressing the area of the thorns. the stick was topped with a cardigan handle and was made for a friend, unfortunately took no pictures of it.

Thank's to Stickie for his shank progression pic's and also loved the trout'n'Snail stick.
