I am new to stick making. Been a falconer for over 25 years but my knees tell me it is time to slow down and so I am going to attempt this hobby. Still fly the birds but not as much.

Welcome!  It's a good hobby and it doesn't take a lot of special tools to get started.  There are a lot of talented makers here that can answer any questions you may have.
