Here's an idea that's worked for me when applying the finish coats to those sticks/branches/shanks. Since the narrow end of the cane will eventually have a black rubber tip covering that end I drill - or using an awl - make a hole. I then attach this "handle" - made from a piece of limb, a dowel screw epoxied in place, and on the other end hangers. That gives me a solid piece to hold while moving/manipulating the shank.

I hope you have a teeeeeeerific Tuesday.

Great idea! The drying racks I use are 3-4 inch diameter sticks of ash with several holes drilled in them with a forstner bit and plywood cleats underneath as feet. I like your approach better since it gives you something to hold onto while the stick is still wet.

I've done that many times - even carried the stick inside to dry holding onto that handle - it works.

Maybe I should apply for a patent and make a kazillion bucks, eh?

:cool:

Good idea!

I've been using a screw with wire wrapped around it on the bottom of my sticks to hang them. The handle makes a lot of sense.
