Good Morning All,
Firstly I would like to say hello to all on this forum, I have been playing about over the last 5 years or so making walking sticks from mainly hazel shanks, giving them away to family and friends, and even leaving some as suprise gifts at various woods and pathways in the local area for walkers. They are nothing special simply cut to length straight shanks some with ferrules, hand straps and some left as nature intended. I would like to hopefully learn how to straighten the shanks and make them more refined and less rustic
with a view to maybe selling some as a part time hobby, though it looks like it will be a long while to catch up with the workmanship here, hence the reason I have joined this great looking forum, thanks in advance for any help / info in the near future.
