I have several sticks in my barrel that are not quite up to snuff as far as form to craft a single stick from. I have an idea to take several 18" to 24" pieces from several sticks and put them together to craft a unique composite stick. With a 1/4" all thread epoxied in place at each splice I don't think strength will be an issue. Thought it would make for a unique and interesting piece. Has anyone tried this out? I've got an idea for a hickory, oak & sassafras hiking stick.
