Went through my stick stash the other day found piece of Hornbeam that's been dry for over a year cut it down to 56" and couldn't make my mind up to leve the bark or to keep the bark so I settled for about half way, the bark would just flake off in some places and was still tight in others. I applied 3 coats BLO and 5 coats Tung Oil Finsh high gloss.

Hornbeam looks like a lovely figured wood, I have never seen the white ferrules before! At least you will have no fear of the stick rotting due to water ingression with the coats of oil on it Randy! Well Done mate, I like the look of the stick. N.

The white ferrules are actually chair leg ends to chairs from sliding.

That's a great idea, I may have to look into this! Although I use mostly brass ferrules they are not always practical for indoors. Thanks Randy. N.
