I've been interested in all kinds of walking sticks for a while now, but found out just recently that this site even existed! I'm almost a complete noob to building walking sticks, although I did make one last year out of a premanufactured poplar pole and copper fittings. It came out alright. I have very few wood working tools, and little ability to buy them right now, so I'm looking for ideas for sticks that don't require specialized equipment. I hope nobody minds if I steal an idea or two. But anyway, I'm looking forward to asking a question or two once in a while.
