While I would prefer found natural shanks I now have limited capabilities for going out the way I once could.  I have found some good resources for wood for topper and shanks.  We here in the states to not have near the suppliers our friends in the UK have for cane making supplies.  These are people I have used and found the products and service reliable. Some of you may have others you will share.

Living in Southern wooded areas, I would think a little advertising around should find some woodsrunners that could keep you supplied in saplings.

I do have friends that bring me wood and I often will barter doing a walking stick for some sicks. However I find there are times when I have run out of cured sticks. I have limited storage for curing. Things do not always cure well or fast in a area that is as humid as it is here and averages 60+ inches of rain a year. The reason for this thread was just to share some resource in case some of those here thought they could use the information.

I have never used a found stick , have found that there usually of a poor quality , but lots of those across the pond do .

I am fortunate enough to be able to harvest them. But I mainly harvest hazel and the local hazel is a dark colour which is probable the most common in this area  and do have a preference for Welsh hazel and chesnut

As Cobalt says we are lucky we can harvest from our local woods and hedgerows, I also have never used dry fallen branches for sticks as they seem to have fracture areas due to drying out on the ground and the damp underside rotting into the main body, that is unless it falls off in front of me :-)
