Welcome to the site Grandpa Ray! I am glad that you joined! I look forward to seeing your pictures!

If you have questions, feel free to post them. I am sure that an experienced carver might come along, see the questions, and respond to you. Heck, I might even know the answer! :)

what is the proper way to use a walking stick??? the thick end to the bottom or the thin end to the bottom?? i have seen them both ways . i prefer the thicker end to the bottom . i put a rubber tip on the stick to help make it skidproof . :rolleyes:

Hi Grandpa ray,

I think personally the proper way is the way it suits you with respect to balance, and how it feels in hand. Sometimes you grab a stick

a certain way and it just feels right. :)
