Looks like a good walking stick
Yes , sir.
And also very sturdy and robust.
I have always found the Sand Live Oak to be such a dense and strong wood, partly, I only assume, because of the fibrous way in which the wood itself is formed .
Also, it is the quickest that I have found sofar on my walking stick-creating-journey, that dries in the kiln or in the air. At a certain temperature and humidity, i can get the moisture down to at least 8 % within 6 or 7 months.
And the natural finish is sharp... No need to stain (depending on the course any given project flows).
There is a certain philosophy , a certain creed of being that describes what we do here, and what the method of our 'madness' really is.
We take from God's creations , and then RE-create , in the form of that which pleases...
We are creators in our own right.
