Nice stick Randy. What did you use for a finish?

Nice! I recently made my first stick (cane, 35") with vine twisted sweet gum and became a fan of the material. We don't have any here in Colorado though and I had to get mine off eBay. Do you have a local source?

Another beauty Randy! I sure do wish we had some of that twisty stuff around our area, though I have seen what the Japaneses honeysuckle has done to the forests in some areas of the south so maybe I should watch what I wish for, eh?

Pretty darned lucky to have it around where you live. I went aspen collecting today, and we'll see how that works (MJC4 says it's good for carving) but I sure love my two twisted sweet gum pieces to date.
