I just stumbled upon this site and already find it helpful.

I live most of the year in Connecticut but spend about two months in Maine each year.

I've been carving walking sticks/staffs for a few years now. I got interested in them after finding suitable sticks with beaver chewed ends and what not which I try to incorporate in the sticks. I'm just starting to get more sophisticated and hope to learn a bunch from the members here.

Welcome to the site Alan. I am always on the look out for that unique piece to make a stick with. We have a few but not a lot of beaver around these parts. I sometimes incorporate wood pieces I find at garage sales or flea markets as well as wood supplied by Mother Nature.

Thanks for the welcome. We have beach front property in far Downeast Maine. It's fairly wild country. I comb the beaches looking for washed up sticks and branches always hoping for a bit of the beaver chew.

We have a bunch of local beavers here where I live and it's amazing how much damage they do. Forests has put up thick wire around a number of trees along their trunks for protection. I've seen huge maples that have been downed by the little buggers.

Welcome, I've done a couple beaver food sticks. One I made into a walking flute :)
Can't wait to see what you bring to the table.
