I imagine that mist folks here make more than one stick. Do you use all of them? Do you sell them? Do you try to sell them馃榾?
I've just started making sticks after using canes for years. I have about a dozen canes, some that I made. I switch off using them with three or so on a regular basis. However I don't use walking sticks as often. What do you folks do with them?

I've sold just over 40 of them, mostly through Etsy. Given a few away to friends and family.

I have one that I use when I walk the dogs, though it's more of a "just in case" stick than a "I need it" stick. I made it 25-30 years ago and this past summer I gave it a complete refurbish so it's good for another 25-30.

I have given most of the canes I've made away so far. I have 3 favorite walking sticks I use weekly and a couple hiking sticks I still use occasionally.
The rest, maybe a dozen or so are stacked up in the corner of the garage. :rolleyes:
But then to me it's just a hobby.

I make some of them them for friends and family and sell the on commission. I make them for a cane for vet program with the ANCC. American national cane club. And make them for vets in my community. If you think you like to do that talk to you local DVA, or other vet organizations in your are.

I have given most of mine away. But this fall I cut several bundles of sticks to be made and sold. They are drying in the back of the shop now. If I'm happy with them I have a local shop that will sell them or I live near the Pacific Coast Trail and may try selling them at the Mid-point. They have a two-week celebration there. Seems like a good place to camp and sell sticks. DR
