We have quite a few stick making shows here and one of the categories which seems to be coming popular is miniature sticks

Here is a few phots of some by Nick Richards on the Facebook site

1st one is rhododendron thumb stick on a blackthorn shank topped with buffalo horn

2nd rams horn crook

a spalted beech with buffalo horn spacers

mahogany on a hazel shaft most of which have been stained with coffee

maximum size for these is 9 inches a fun thing to do there is also quite a few miniature stick holders

Those are fantastic little sticks! I've got to try a coffee stain one of these days.

yes there fun and it will be a way of using off cuts both wood and horn, bit of a challenge to work rams and buffalo horn so small

the turned small stick holder I have seen was exceptional good.

Ideal little projects to do whilst waiting for other sticks to dry etc.

One of the guy's at our stick club makes these for competition,there is a section in competition for these minatures .

The are shown in a set of 5 and the maximum size is 9 inches, and only the sticks are judged not the base.

As Cobalt says ,it is a good way of using wht would otherwise be scrap.
