Hello everyone,
I have used chinaberry wood for few walking sticks i made.
I've been very selective in my choice and used solid sticks with massive wood structure.
I've also varnished the product to protect it and ensure its durability.
What do you think about this? Your feedback and experience will be enriching.

Hello and welcome to the forum. I have never used chinaberry I would like to see a picture if possible. I use a veriatey of woods, hickory, walnut, mahogany, and doogwood are some of them. With canes I like 1 inch to 1 1/2 inch diamiter. Walkingstick I will use 1 1/2 to 2 inch diameter stock.

Thank you for your reply and greeting
I have attached few pictures showing this type of wood in its raw status, then with bark off and its structure.
Hope this will help.

Adding my welcome aboard.
I'd never heard of china berry, but it looks like nice wood for sticks. I like the pic of the finished stick you had. Looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Thank you
Happy to join, to gain and share experiences
This kind of tree is also called 'Neem' as per my modest research (hope it's correct).
The wood is straight naturally.

I will be attaching what I'm doing
I already uploaded few pics on instagram under the name of moving timber.
I started up this kind of work/hobby in june 2020 and started posting 2 or 3 months back.

One of the best things i did is the eagle stick.
It was a joyful challenge :)

Your eagle turned out great. I really liked the caption you gave the first picture. Very funny!
