Welcome!

The general rule is a to give a year per inch of thickness for drying. Find a dry cool place to store them while they dry. Plenty of threads here on the subject. Sometimes you can get away with less but the general rule is safer.

The inlay is a good idea as long as the stick has finished drying and is stable.

yea it sat for a year, i filled the cracks with epoxy and set the stones in it, I left bark on and slowly took it off and ended up with all of it off.

I love it! I usually use wood glue mixed with the sawdust from the stick but that's awesome. Once saw an idea that I've been thinking about, using melted bronze or copper to fill the cracks. Oh,and welcome!
