Hey all, been lurking for a while figured I might as well jump in. My dad made canes and walking sticks and it always fascinated me. Now that I am a little older I finally have some patience and though I would give it a try. Of course I am now hooked. This is my second attempt at carving a face on a stick.

Welcome Jslone. Nice start to your new hobby. Be forewarned making walking sticks is like eating potato chips. Nobody ever makes one!

Welcome to the forum. Looks like you are off to a great start. There are a lot of carvers in your state. Carving clubs are a great place to learn and meet other carvers . You may live with in driving distance of one. http://woodcarvingillustrated.com/clubs/?state=KY

welcome to the site . this pastime is addictive so be warned

there is only 1 rule with stickmaking and that s there are no rules, just enjoy

I would recomend CV advice about carving i havnt been carving long and find stickmaking clubs and carving clubs pretty helpful .

They will help you to widen your ideas on what a stick should be and improve your carving as well as the social aspect of life
