Gents and ladies,

I have a beech stick that is dry and that I use as a hiking stick. I tried to straighten it just a little bit with steam. I applied too much pressure and snapped it in two. A little upset, I'm wondering, is this stick now a total loss? Can I glue it back together without compromising the integrity.

Thank you in advance.

Sad and wiser man...

Hey Rodney,

Thanks. I decided to just dispose of it. I know what I did wrong and will try to not make the same mistake twice. I have some hazel sticks that have some blemishes on them and are not in great condition. I will use these as practice sticks for straightening and carving and other experiments.
