One of the challenges is waiting for them to dry. My stock, most of it anyhow is nearing on two years and I know it's

workable now. I cut it longer to compensate for checking as you look like you've done in your gallery photo's. Keep

an eye on the wood, and as it dries it'll feel lighter when picked up and you'll probably be able to tell when it's dry

enough to saw it to length and start sanding.

One of the pleasures I found with this hobby, while waiting for initial stock to dry was getting out time and time again,

on the lookout for more sticks and natural bend canes. It can be a lot of fun.
