I made these two walking sticks from a Devils Walking Stick I had to use thick leather gloves to pell the bark off let them dry for about 4 months this stuff is very stiff just decided to try it I like the results got adout 16 more drying now. The first on is the woods natural color I burned the other one with my toruch. If you don't know what Devils Walking Stick is Google it that's why I used leather gloves

Wow, looks to be a downright nasty tree to run into in the woods! I like the one you burned. I wonder if the wood will take oils or stain?

Now that took some time and a few curses i bet .
Pealing the bark is real easy I wear thick leather gloves it's not that hard. I peal it green it only takes a few minutes.

I googled it - it seems like it'd be kind of neat to leave a "ring" of the bark/thorns around in certain spots, just for effect...
I have thought about it I might just give one a try.
