I am going to start this thread in hopes that it will spur me to make this my year of clearing out my stick buckets.

I am going to start with a clean slate...literally. I cleaned my workspace out in the garage and semi-organized. I am going to start with finishing some on going sticks and design some new ones

Looks like you've got some nice sticks there to play with too.

BTW, that is perhaps THE most comfortable work stool I've ever seen!

JJireh, good start on what will be a mighty handsome looking cane. Do you know what type of maple?

Thanks all.

Fairly sure it's Silver Maple, I picked it up from a logging site. It was already pushed down and had been for a while. The cracks occurred during that time and most all of the bark was gone or ruined. Still sturdy and hard as a rock. I have to strop regularly :)

Cobalt, either way, I'm still gonna be smiling. Those things that interfere are almost always of value (family, outdoors, celebrations, etc.) Honestly, I could make time if I really wanted ;) I usually end up staying up too late though.

Little more work last nightl.

JJireh, of course you know I love the naturally bent canes. I make it a point when it in the woods to actively look for these shape. Looks like yours is going to be very nice!

While I found this one, I pull saplings most every year and if you dig down into the root mass, I have found most of them have some form of bend
