Newbie CPA here! I know nothing about wood working and my only skills are with numbers, but I've fallen in love with walking sticks. I ove walking thru the woods in the fall but I have to have a walking stick because I'm terrified of snakes.

We all started somewhere. My first stick was a partly-rotted pine branch. Bad idea...

 

Your tool kit will be a reflection of the complexity of the sticks you like to make. Mine consists of maybe 5-6 regularly used items. One of those is a bottle opener for a bit of refreshment while working.

 

Welcome aboard.

I'm not sure how to post pix. I've made a couple sticks. I don't own any power tools and have no wood working experience. But holding a piece of wood I cut and finished really makes me feel good. I have a piece of Osage Orange that I finished using Tung Oil from Milk Paint Company and it's a thing of beauty.

Welcome to the forum Jon54. You have a good group here. Every one is glad to share. Stick making is like eating chips . It's hard to just do one!!!

Welcome to the forum, we have all started at some time and knew nothing about the hobby.
