Spring is on its way and the weather will be warmer and longer days offering a bit more time to get into our stick making. If there are some of you that want to do more decorative carving, carve wood spirits or get into carving topper? We have a number of stick makers here that are more than glad to be of help. We all started out with not knowing where to start. I wanted to encourage those of you looking to expand you skills to ask questions post pictures I will be more than glad to offer what help I can and I believe others here will do the same. Maybe I to help you find a carving club within driving distance. They can be a great place to learn also. There are a number of really good how to books with good pictures and direction. if your in the UK there are great walking stick clubs and guids.Here in the states we only have one or two such clubs. but there are usually sick makers in most of the carving clubs. If you have questions you can send me a pm also. We can make this forum a great place to learn and grow skills. but only if we have the interest to do that. So speak up if you want some help or are willing to help there is no such thing as knowing it all. I learn new things here all the time.
Have a great day.
