I've yet to do it myself (only made crooked sticks so far), but I know there are stick mates among us who nicely straighten sticks, often with steam. My questions are, for starters, when is a stick a candidate for steam straightening. Is it better for it to be green or dry, or at some point between the two conditions? Are there only certain specific types of sticks (like shepherd's canes) normally targeted for straightening (and associated specific wood species), and what are those? If you see someone like me walking with a crooked stick (perhaps because I'm ignorant about all the above) do you view me with horror, contempt, both, or neither? : ) Thanks in advance for your thoughts and knowledge.
