The startings of some nice knobs there! Are you going to try to straighten the one or go as is? I think it can look good either way.

I would have thought you'd have your work cut out trying to straighten this stick, that's not to say it couldn't be done, I would just be too much of a coward to try. The bark seems okay in the photo's so it may oil up nicely. It looks to be a heavy shank, is it as heavy as it looks? N.

Hey thanks for all the comments yes number 2 is bigger in shank but not much more heavy in weight. I will not straighten neither of them, I like natures form that it gives me. So thanks.

Now as for a update of the first one I stained it to give it the look that has been out in the rain for a year which I would not do but it looks nice. I then stained it then sanded down to gives it shades of color to it. When I get done with I will coat it danish oil and then finish with a shiny wax called odies wax which gives it a soft shine I hope...

So here are the pics.two without oil which I used blo. to see a for taste to what it would look like....
