I first discovered a passion for stickmaking 20 odd years ago when I was working as a ranger for the Wildlife Trust here in the UK. I used to travel around the shows and festivals making and selling them. One thing led to another and I found that, with bills to pay, I couldn't devote the time needed to the sticks so they sort of fell by the wayside.
But, business is taking care of itself now and I really miss the sticks! So, I'm taking it back up again and hope to get lots of inspiration from you good people.
From looking through the gallery, there's certainly some talented folk here. I'm afraid it'll take me a while to show you some of my own work, I need to get out to the woods to collect some sticks and get them seasoned first! It's been several years since I made one and my stock of seasoned blanks has ended up on the woodburner in that time.
Check with cobalt. He may know of a seasoned stick suppliers you can use until you can get your own supply built. I am not sure what is a good price for you but I look at the site often. ( AllGoodIdeas.co.uk )
