Looking good Randy! Is the order from the U.K. for just the topper? Shipping a complete walking stick across the Atlantic would be rather salty, I would think.

Yes mark its just the topper. I am looking into shipping now. I am told by a friend it will be ok if it is bark free and it has a finish on it. I am just not sure yet.

I am the lucky person to have received this topper. Over the moon with it. Cannot wait to put it on the shank I have in mind. But that is seasoning at the moment. Till then I will decide which oil to treat it with and do that. It certainly will be a beefy stick when finished but should be stunning.

Randys work is pretty good pleased your satisfied with it. It is more like a green man then most sticks I have seen on this line it gives the impression of that medieval feel used as gargoyles on church's

A nice person sent me 4 bits of the closest type of wood we could find to Butternut in the UK. So I am now doing a trial with Boiled linseed Oil, Pure Tung Oil, Quick Drying Tung Oil, and Danish Oil. But Have decided to order some Teak oil to do that as well. But will have to catch up with that as I'm on my 3rd coat of the others already.

I can already see the difference in not only how each darkens the wood but even more how each soaks in to the wood. The Tung oil has gone far deeper. Will be interesting to see how it compares to Teak oil.
